Scholarships / Loans » Tuition Assistance for Mexican Students

The Tuition Assistance for Mexican Students (TAMS) scholarship sometimes known as “The Mexican Pilot Program” and also referred to as PASE ( Programa de Asistencia Estudiantil) provides a waiver of the non-resident portion of a student's tuition bill for qualified students. TAMS  is not a cash award. To be eligible for TAMS, you must be a citizen and resident of Mexico who demonstrates financial need. This is a competitive process as the number of awards allotted per semester is limited.  The TAMS is available to new and continuing students who demonstrate financial need.
