Century Scholars Program

Established in 1999, the Century Scholars Program is a partnership between Texas A&M University and 110 under-represented Texas high schools to enroll and retain top students from each school. This program provides both scholarship funds and access to a four-year learning community which strives to help students develop during their time in college. Each scholarship includes a one-time $1000 scholarship to be used for a Texas A&M approved study abroad experience.
Century Scholarship
  • $5,000 per year for 4 years
  • Must maintain a 2.75 overall GPR
  • You must be a graduate of a Century Scholar school. See below for a list of schools.
  • There is no minimum SAT or ACT score in order to be considered.
In addition to your academic achievement including achievement under difficult circumstances, your co-curricular involvement (campus and community activities, leadership roles, employment, etc.) is also considered.
In order to provide scholarship opportunities to the greatest number of students, Texas A&M does not stack Academic Scholarships. If you qualify for more than one Academic Scholarship, our office will offer you the highest dollar-value scholarship only. 
Century Scholarships are four year awards. You must meet eligibility requirements each year to continue receiving your scholarship in future years. 
Apply using the ApplyTexas Application or the Coalition Application. You must complete the admission and scholarship portions to be considered.

December 1*

*If the deadline falls on a weekend, the application will remain open until 11:59 PM (CST) on the following Monday.
