Applicants who meet the following criteria will be considered for Maroon Coat℠ membership.
*If a Maroon Coat℠ accepts an internship during one of the semesters, membership can still be obtained and kept if the student makes arrangements with the executive council before the first meeting of the semester. Undergraduate and graduate applicants must be able to serve as a Maroon Coat until graduation.
We need students who are willing and able to serve the Texas A&M Foundation in many capacities. Although many of our events are exclusive and prestigious, many are also simple and ordinary. Humility is an important characteristic in our applicants. We are looking for those who enjoy giving back without being the center of attention. The most important quality is that you have benefited from Texas A&M and love to say thank you to those who give back.
The Texas A&M Foundation Maroon Coats℠ look for individuals who possess the following qualities:
Those with selfless motives, looking to serve the Foundation and A&M, not their own resume or professional network.
Best Suited for the Purpose
We want those who are going to succeed at what we do, building and furthering relationships with Texas A&M’s top donors while informing them of the current campus needs.
We look for those that live intentionally—those who have a unique passion and have pursued their passions with enthusiastic diligence. This will allow for members to have a story to tell donors.
While acknowledging the “well-intentioned” priority, we look for leaders on campus that can help raise awareness about the Foundation and the Maroon Coats℠ to current students.
Acknowledging all of the above as priorities, we will be sensitive to the needs of Foundation staff from all areas. Also, we will be sensitive to the gender/ethnic balance, while not sacrificing the quality of an individual.
The selections process has three stages: application, social and interview. As an applicant moves through each stage, the voting delegation makes decisions about the applicant’s ability to serve the Texas A&M Foundation as a Maroon Coat℠.
Members in good standing with the group will retain their Maroon Coat℠ status until graduation.
