If you are the recipient of any type of award, typically scholarships or corporate sponsorships, from a source other than Texas A&M University, you must report it to Scholarships & Financial Aid as soon as possible. An adjustment in your financial aid offer may be needed according to the guidelines of the aid programs currently offered. You may be required to repay financial assistance you have already received if you are no longer eligible for those aid programs.

Be alert of potential scholarship scams. Any scholarship asking for a deposit is not considered a bona fide scholarship. Some private companies will request a deposit, which in some cases can be a reduction in a housing payment, or a “searching” fee for scholarships that students can pursue on their own without paying a fee.
