The Texas A&M University Dependent Children of Faculty/Staff and Support Staff Scholarship Programs are designed to provide scholarships to dependent children of Texas A&M University (TAMU) Faculty, Staff and Support Staff. Funding for these programs is available from a Quasi-Endowment.

These programs are designed to recognize the contributions of TAMU employees in the workplace and in the community by rewarding their children on the basis of need and academic achievement. Fifty percent of scholarship awards will be evaluated on academic merit. The remaining fifty percent will be awarded on a combination of need and merit. The scholarships are $1,500 per year and vary in length from one to four years depending on the student's undergraduate classification. All scholarships must be used at TAMU in College Station.


  • You must be admitted and planning to attend TAMU in College Station during the upcoming fall semester or a full-time undergraduate student.
  • You must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 15 to be considered for need-based scholarships.
  • You must be the dependent child of a current faculty, staff or support staff employee at TAMU in College Station (does not include TEES, TEEX or any employer other than TAMU main campus).
  • Your parent must have been continuously employed at TAMU-College Station for at least 2 years prior to the coming fall semester in a full-time position budgeted at least 50%.
  • Maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPR.


The awards vary in length from one to four years, depending upon your undergraduate classification.
