- Latin American Students
Students from Latin America may qualify for a partial scholarship to be used to pay a portion of their tuition. In addition, students from Latin America receiving a scholarship will qualify to pay tuition at the rate applicable to Florida residents.
- Linkage Institute Programs
The state of Florida has established linkage institute programs for several countries and regions. A limited number of well-qualified students who are citizens of “linkage” countries are permitted to pay resident rather than non-resident tuition for a specified number of credit hours. Linkage programs currently exist for the following countries and regions: Brazil, Canada, the Caribbean, China, Costa Rica, Eastern Europe, France, Israel, Japan, Mexico and West Africa.
- Graduate Assistantships
Each year the Graduate Tax Program employs a number of students as Graduate Assistants. A Graduate Assistant works with a member of the tax faculty as a research assistant on projects that the faculty member has developed. Each person who receives an assistantship is classified, for the period of the appointment, as a Florida resident for tuition purposes, and is also awarded a stipend and a partial tuition waver, or a stipend and a scholarship.
