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 scholarship is for four years and is currently $3,000 per year. Primary considerations for the awards include academic achievement, involvement in extracurricular activities (excluding athletics), reasons for wanting to attend Texas A&M University and financial need. Applicants will be narrowed to approximatley twenty finalists who will be scheduled for a personal interview on Saturday April 11, 2015 with the Foundation’s Scholastic Review Board that will make the final selection.
Even prior to chartering the San Antonio A&M Club Foundation on October 21, 1982 , the San Antonio A&M Club had provided scholarships for two decades. It is most proud of its program and the outstanding individuals it has been able to assist. Please do not hesitate to call the Foundation at 341-1393, if we can be of any assistance.
This also serves as an application for the
"Conroy" scholarship, awarded by the Board of Regents of Texas
A&M University upon recommendation of the Board of Directors of the San
Antonio A&M Club Foundation. The number and dollar amount these scholarships will be determined at a later date.
