Prior to chartering the San Antonio A&M Club Foundation on October 21, 1982 , the San Antonio A&M Club provided scholarships to Bexar County students. Overall our Club has raised over $1M in scholarship funds. We are most proud of our program and the outstanding individuals we have been able to assist.
Each year the San Antonio A&M Club Foundation presents the Opportunity Award Scholarship to outstanding students graduating from Bexar County high schools or who reside in Bexar County at the time of graduation. This $12,000 scholarship is granted for four years and is distributed at $1,500 per semester. Primary considerations for the award includes academic achievement, involvement in extracurricular activities, reasons for wanting to attend Texas A&M University (College Station or Galveston campuses), and financial need. Applicants are narrowed to approximately twenty finalists who are scheduled for a personal interview at Aggie Park with our Foundation’s Scholarship Committee. Following the interviews, the Scholarship Committee makes the final selections for the awards and sends the list to the San Antonio A&M Club and Foundation's Board of Directors for final approval.
The San Antonio A&M Club is also responsible for selecting students for the "Conroy" scholarship recipients, which is awarded by the Board of Regents of Texas A&M University upon recommendation of our Scholarship Committee and the Board of Directors of the San Antonio A&M Club. The number and dollar amount of these scholarships is determined by Texas A&M University at a later date.
If you have any questions about the scholarship program, please contact us by phone or email at 210-341-1393, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
