As Aggies, we are called to help and serve others, and the San Antonio A&M Club is proud to be able to do so through our scholarship program. Since inception, San Antonio A&M Club and the San Antonio A&M Club Foundation have raised over one million dollars to fund scholarships for deserving Bexar County Aggies. Each year, the San Antonio A&M Club Foundation presents the Opportunity Award Scholarship to outstanding students graduating from Bexar County high schools or residing in Bexar County at the time of high school graduation.
The scholarship award totals $12,000 and is distributed at a rate of $1,500 each semester for the students first 8 semesters, not including summer sessions. Primary considerations for the scholarship include academic achievement, involvement in extracurricular activities, reasons for wanting to attend Texas A&M University, and financial need. Approximately twenty finalists will be selected for a personal interview with the San Antonio A&M Club Foundation’s Scholarship Committee. The Scholarship Committee will select eight scholarship recipients from those interviewed.
By completing this application, you will also be given consideration for the Mark Conroy Scholarship which is awarded to recipients by the Texas A&M University Board of Regents upon recommendation by the Board of Directors of the San Antonio A&M Club Foundation. The Mark Conroy Scholarship is a one-year award of $1,000.
The San Antonio A&M Club Foundation Scholarship Program is administered without regard to race, color, religion, creed, gender, or national origin. To be eligible for this scholarship, applicants must meet the following two conditions:
- Applicants must be graduating from a high school in Bexar County or reside in Bexar County at the time of graduation. (Students living in Bexar County but attending a high school outside of Bexar County are eligible.)
- Applicants must be unconditionally admitted to Texas A&M University for the Fall 2019 semester and be unconditionally committed to attending and graduating from Texas A&M University at either the College Station or Galveston campus. Students attending any other branches of the Texas A&M System (TAMU Kingsville, TAMU San Antonio, West Texas A&M, etc.) are not eligible.
