Congratulations! You have been accepted into Texas A&M University.
For a prospective student, reading these words marks the beginning of an educational opportunity like no other. Filled with exhilarating football games, meaningful friendships, exceptional career preparation and a chance to contribute diverse ideas in the workplace, these words can start a remarkable journey that leads to a successful, impactful life.
But for many, the dream of an education at Texas A&M does not come true with an acceptance letter. Despite having incredible potential to become influential leaders, many students from disadvantaged backgrounds cannot confirm their acceptance due to financial challenges.
Since 1999, the Foundation Excellence Award (FEA) program has helped remove these financial barriers and given thousands of students from historically underserved groups the opportunity to achieve higher education at Texas A&M. Through this program, companies and foundations can partner with the university to provide outstanding students a chance to achieve their educational dreams and meet the growing need to recruit underrepresented voices in corporations.
Pledges, Partners and Promises
The FEA program supports outstanding students from underserved groups who are U.S. residents and who gain admittance to Texas A&M. This includes minorities as well as students from economically and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. As the population of Texas continues to change, the FEA program strives to make Aggieland a place for all to achieve success. Recipients receive a stipend from $2,000 to $2,500 and can be awarded for one year up to four based on academic qualifications, extracurricular activities and financial need.
