Tuition Assistance for Mexican Students (TAMS)

The Tuition Assistance for Mexican Students (TAMS) award provides a waiver of the non-resident portion of a student's tuition bill. The TAMS award is not a cash award. To be eligible for the TAMS award, you must be a citizen and resident of Mexico who demonstrates financial need. There is a limited number of awards, so the process is competitive and receiving the TAMS is not guaranteed.

New & Continuing students who do not currently have a TAMS award:

If you are a new or continuing student who does not currently have a TAMS award and demonstrates financial need, then you may submit a TAMS application.

Download the 2015-2016 TAMS Application

Submission Deadline for New and Continuing Students: May 29, 2015

Continuing students who currently have a TAMS award:

Current recipients of the TAMS award must submit a TAMS Renewal Application in order to continue receiving their TAMS award for the upcoming 2015-2016 academic year. Renewal of the TAMS award is not guaranteed and is dependent on both amount of awards available and continued demonstration of financial need.

If you do not submit a TAMS Renewal Application by the deadline, then you may submit your application by the New TAMS Award deadline of May 29, 2015. However, late submission of the TAMS Renewal Application reduces your likelihood of renewing your TAMS award.
