DISCOVER LATIN AMERICA!

Starting January 2010, TAMIU students who choose a semester-long affiliate program in Latin or Central America (excluding Mexico) are eligible for a matching award from TAMIU.  This award matches the discount a TAMIU student receives from the Affiliate Partner: for example, if you receive a $400 program discount, TAMIU will match this with a $400 award.  You are still eligible to apply for any of the competetive TAMIU scholarships.  Affiliate discounts: AIFS $400, ISA $300, CEA $250, API $250, IFSA $ TBA.
