Association donors typically provide around 1,400 academic scholarships and 500 Aggie Ring Scholarships per year. Even more come from Texas A&M Clubs and Aggie Moms’ Clubs, which are part of The Association.
How can students apply? There are different applications for prospective students and for enrolled students:
- Prospective A&M freshmen and transfers: When you apply to A&M, many Association and A&M Club/Aggie Moms’ Club scholarships are awarded based on the scholarship portion of your Apply Texas college application: tamu.edu/apply. Even if you may not believe you are eligible for aid, it is a good practice to fill out the scholarship part of the application, because scholarship qualifications can vary widely.
- Currently enrolled A&M students: Between October and February, enrolled A&M students can fill out the University Scholarship Application (uwide.tamu.edu) to be considered for these and other scholarships for the next year. (In 2022-23, the application window was Oct. 15, 2022-Feb. 1, 2023.)
- For Aggie Ring Scholarships: On the “Eligibility” tab of the application, complete the following question: "Do you anticipate receiving your Aggie Ring in September 2024, November 2024 or April 2025?" Learn more at tx.ag/RingScholApply.
- Aggie Rings for Student Veterans: Veterans currently attending A&M should contact A&M’s Don & Ellie Knauss Veteran Resource and Support Center to apply through the Aggie Rings for Student Veterans program, operated by The Association.
More opportunities for both enrolled and prospective students:
- Check with local clubs: Your nearest A&M Club or Aggie Moms’ Club might have scholarships that they award through their own application processes rather than through the A&M process. These may go to local high school seniors headed to A&M, or in some cases to already-enrolled students at A&M. Here’s how to find those organizations! A&M Clubs: tx.ag/Clubs. Aggie Moms’ Clubs: aggiemoms.org/findaclub.
- Check with Constituent Networks: These organizations are part of The Association of Former Students and may offer scholarships, such as the Texas Aggie Bar Association's scholarships for Aggies heading to law schools, and the Texas A&M Hispanic Network's scholarships for freshmen, current students, graduate students, senior boots and Aggie Rings. Find all the Constituent Networks at AggieNetwork.com/cn.
