Through a generous gift from Susanne and Melbern Glasscock ’59 and other former trustees, the Texas A&M Foundation Trustees’ Outstanding Student Award was established to provide public recognition and a minimum $2,500 monetary award to outstanding graduating seniors at Texas A&M.

Recipients of the award have distinguished themselves in a variety of ways but are primarily judged on their achievements while overcoming personal or family financial challenges. Candidates for the award demonstrate financial need and have received one or more scholarships funded through the Texas A&M Foundation. The award is intended to give recipients a boost in the next phase of their lives after graduation.
