Scholarship Opportunities for International Students!

I wanted to make y’all aware of a few of the Spring 2017 scholarship opportunities available from the International Office for international students. All applications are due by November 1st, are open to both graduate and undergraduate international students, and are available for completion online below:

•                     Tuition Assistance for Mexican Students (TAMS) – provides a waiver of the nonresident portion of an international student from Mexico’s tuition bill. Eligibility requirements state that you must be a citizen and resident of Mexico who demonstrates financial need. Awards are limited, so the process is competitve and receiving the TAMS is not guaranteed.

•                     General ISSS Financial Aid – This $2,500/semester award pays towards the tuition bill and is available to international students with financial need who have completed at least 2 semester at UT.

•                     Ethel Loving de Diaz Scholarship – Incoming and current Mexican international students who demonstrate financial need and are working to fund their degree are eligible to apply for this $1,500 award.

•                     The Society of Iranian-American Women for Education (SIAWE) Scholarship – a $1,000 award that recognizes a student of Iranian descent who demonstrates financial need and academic excellence. The award can either be applied towards the spring tuition bill or be paid out in cash
