The Scholarship donor form is to be used by donors to inform the university on how they would like their funds to be utilized and distributed. If the donor does not specify that an award is to be given in only one semester, Scholarships & Financial Aid policy is to split funds of $1,000 or more between semesters. Please send your check with the donor form to our office at the address listed on the donor form.

Per our University policy all recipients of scholarships are required full-time enrollment. If you are waiving full-time enrollment for your recipient(s) please note this on the donor form or within the award letter sent with your check. You may also email us directly at or call 979-845-3982

Matching Gift Information

Scholarships & Financial Aid and the Texas A&M Foundation have recently updated their procedures for receiving, certifying, and processing gifts that request matching and the related matching gifts, and for awarding scholarships from these gifts. The overarching concepts are discussed below from the Scholarships & Financial Aid’s “Procedures for Gifts Requesting Match and the Related Matching Gifts”.

If the gift is intended for a scholarship account, the Texas A&M Foundation will verify that the recipients are chosen by members of the Texas A&M University administration, faculty and/or staff. If it is determined that these selections are not made by the above mentioned group(s), then the donor’s gift and matching gift form will be returned to the donor with a letter of explanation.

Texas A&M University accepts gifts requesting match and the related matching gift that have been directed through the Texas A&M Foundation. These gifts are to be administered as the donor directs. However, the gifts also must be administered within applicable matching program requirements, federal and state statues, institutional policies, and Scholarships & Financial Aid (SFA) procedures. To comply with the matching entity’s requirements, employees of Texas A&M University must make the selections for all scholarships from all gifts that are part of matching programs.

We hope that this information will be useful. If you have any questions regarding the procedures, you may contact Ann Lovett at the Texas A&M Foundation at (800) 392-3310 or or Judi Haas in Scholarships & Financial Aid at (979) 458-5371 or We appreciate your effort and dedication in providing support for students attending Texas A&M University.
