Financing Your Education

The Master of Arts in International Studies (MAIS) Program is a 28-unit program. For the most current tuition and financial aid information for the MAIS Program in the College of Arts and Sciences at USF, please click here.


The Master of Arts in International Studies (MAIS) Program offers a limited number of merit-based scholarships to incoming students on a competitive basis. There is no separate application for these one-time scholarships, which are limited in number, vary in amount, and cover only part of tuition costs. If a scholarship is awarded, such an award and the amount will be indicated in the admission letter sent by the MAIS Program. All students admitted to the MAIS Program are considered for these scholarships during the admission decision process.
