Scholarships and fellowships change lives and enrich the student body. Scholarships drive the spirit and guide the minds of generations of Aggies so they can affect the world in productive and inventive ways. When you fund a scholarship or fellowship, you’re making a profound difference for individual students and for the lives those students touch as graduates of Texas A&M University.
Some of the best high school students can't afford today's tuition, but scholarships open up a world of possibilities to them. Scholarships also free students from the necessity of part-time jobs, giving them more time to satisfy their intellectual curiosity or to participate in A&M's character-building organizations.
"Student Impact" means your gift will benefit Texas A&M students—either undergraduates or graduates—through direct assistance in the form of a scholarship or graduate fellowship.
Endowed scholarships are crucial to the future of A&M because they provide benefits to students for generations. The Texas A&M Foundation invests endowed scholarship funds in a way that maximizes growth while safeguarding the principal. Then it distributes only the earnings on your investment.
Most donors choose to create an endowed gift that will last in perpetuity, but you may also choose to fund an annual scholarship by making a one-time gift. You can direct your scholarship to support a student in a particular major, field of study or from a specific geographic region.
