The Transfer Scholarship is designed to recognize outstanding students who will be transferring to Texas A&M University. In some cases, students are required to have completed at least 24 hours at their previous institution. The annual awards range from $500 to $3,000. Selection criteria for the Transfer Scholarship include, but are not limited to, academic achievement, extracurricular activities, leadership, major, and, in some instances, financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you are not a Texas resident, you may be eligible to receive a non-resident tuition waiver after receiving a competitive scholarship of $1,000 or more from Texas A&M University.
Effective Fall 2017, students must be awarded and maintain competitive scholarships of at least $4,000 per academic year in order to qualify for this waiver. Current students with existing and continuing scholarship awards may continue to receive this waiver at the previous $1,000 threshold. All new students and new scholarship recipients are subject to the $4,000 minimum.
You must be an admitted undergraduate transfer student in order to be considered for Transfer Scholarships.
Some transfer scholarships are multi-semester scholarships while other awards are one semester in duration. For multi-semester transfer scholarships, students must continually meet the scholarship requirements for each awarded semester in order to receive the semester’s award amount.
Students may apply using the ApplyTexas Application
or the Coalition Application
