  • Meet admissions requirements and be accepted to Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas and be enrolled as an incoming freshman after high school graduation
  • Score at least a minimum 1400 on the SAT (or 30 on the ACT)

The Brockman Foundation awards scholarships to outstanding students who have excelled academically, while also exhibiting good character, high levels of constructive community engagement, and the best qualities of a good citizen.
Eligible candidates will apply online directly with the Brockman Foundation.
Yes, both Texas residents and non-residents are eligible for consideration.  However, you must also graduate from a US accredited high school.
An international (non-U.S. citizen) student may apply for the scholarship as long as you can provide, with your application, sufficient evidence that you have a visa allowing you to study in the United States.  International students must also have an SAT or ACT score (not another equivalent).
While the final date to submit the Brockman Scholars application and all supporting documentation is not finalized, applications will be accepted from July 1 to September 30.
All complete applications (including all supporting documentation) received by the deadline will be reviewed. In progress and incomplete applications will not be considered.
Finalist will be invited to in-person regional interviews with Brockman Foundation.  Students selected to be named a Brockman Scholar will receive notification of such directly from the Brockman Foundation during Selection Weekend.

No, the Brockman Scholarship program is only available to students at Texas A&M in College Station.
If you submit your admissions and scholarship applications by the published deadline (December 1), you will be considered for other Texas A&M University scholarship programs.  However, if you are invited to and accept the invitation to become a Brockman Scholar, all other University scholarships will be forfeited, as the Brockman Foundation will cover (but not exceed) your full cost of attendance at Texas A&M.
Students eligible for the Federal Pell Grant, ROTC funding, and/or veterans/dependent educational benefits may still receive these funds.  The difference will be subtracted from your Brockman support so that you will still have your full cost of attendance met.  These are the only funding exceptions to your Brockman support.
If you are selected for other scholarship programs through your high school, school district, community organization, employers, or civic groups, you MUST decline these scholarships, as the Brockman Foundation will cover (but not exceed) your full cost of attendance (minus loan fees) at Texas A&M.

For more information on what is included in the cost of attendance, visit Cost of Attendance Page.

Yes, non-Texas residents selected as Brockman Scholars will qualify for the Non-resident tuition waiver.  Non-resident students will receive support for the difference of the non-resident cost of attendance minus the value of the waiver, essentially receiving the same Brockman Foundation funds as a Texas resident.
The Brockman Foundation scholarship requires you to maintain at least a cumulative 3.5 GPR and complete at least 30 semester credit hours per year at Texas A&M. (Dual credit, transfer credit, and/or credit by AP exam will count towards this requirement.)
You must remain in a STEM major.
Also, you will be expected to attend events and meetings for all Brockman scholars.
Participation in an honors program is not required, however, most Brockman scholars participate in the University Honors program or an academic college-based program (ex. Engineering Honors Program).
All Brockman Scholars are required to live on-campus your freshman year.
Your scholarship offer will be posted to your Financial Aid portal at well before the start of the fall semester.  You will not need to accept these awards. Once you are enrolled-full time and no sooner that 10 days prior to the start of the semester, funds will credit to your student account.  Once all posted University charges are paid (tuition, required fees, optional fees, parking, housing, meal plan, etc.), the remaining credit will be refunded to you for the remainder of your expenses (books, supplies, personal expenses).  You must setup direct deposit in order to receive this refund. Details on how to setup direct deposit can be found on the Student Business Services Refunds page.
The amount of your award will be based on your financial aid estimated cost of attendance and will reviewed a few weeks into each semester to ensure that your actual tuition and fee expenses are covered.  Adjustments may result in an additional refund.
