Announcement Regarding 2020-2021 Houston Aggie Mom Scholarships
Due to Covid-19, the process for our scholarship fund disbursement had to change for the upcoming academic year of 2020-2021.
In normal years, our Houston Aggie Mom Scholarship Committee is responsible for selecting the scholarship recipients. This spring, our club’s recipients will be chosen by the Texas A&M Office of Scholarship & Financial Aid (SFA). Recipients of our scholarship will continue to be deserving Houston area students. In order to qualify for consideration, a student must have applied through the Scholarship Office by their February 1st deadline.
We understand this is a change from our normal process. This year brings many disruptions and adjustments, along with “firsts”. The desire of Houston Aggie Moms’ Club is to continue awarding scholarships to students in our Houston area zip-codes and this solution allows us to do that. SFA will notify scholarship recipients over the summer.
Any additional changes or new information will be posted here.
In 1976, through the sale of an Aggie Mom’s Cookbook, our club set precedent by presenting Texas A&M with a $25,000 President’s Endowed Scholarship. Since then, we have presented hundreds of scholarships to deserving students.
In 1958, the Houston A&M University Mothers’ Club voted to present an award to the Corps Unit with the highest scholastic rating.
To review Texas A&M University scholarship requirements, deadlines, and application processes, go to the TAMU Scholarship & Financial Aid Website.
