TAMIU Part of Youth ACES Summer II
College Bound Program

Texas A&M International University is part of a partnership with the Texas Workforce Center and others that are recruiting 2007 high school graduates for the Academic and Career Enhancement for Success (ACES) youth College Bound Program.

The youth ACES College Bound Program will assist participants that meet all the program eligibility requirements with a scholarship so that they can receive free tuition, free books, and free room/board.

Additionally, students will also earn money by participating in the college work study program. For more information, call the Information and Referral toll-free line at 2-1-1.

In addition to TAMIU, the partnership includes Southwest Texas Junior College and Sul Ross State University at Alpine.
