Diversity and excellence go hand in hand at Texas A&M. A diverse student body offers students a culturally rich experience that better prepares them for life beyond college. For nearly a decade, Foundation Excellence Award (FEA) scholarships have helped recruit and retain outstanding undergraduates from historically disadvantaged groups often underrepresented in our student body, including minorities and those who face significant economic or educational hurdles.
Giving a Foundation Excellence Award
A gift of $10,000 will fund a one-time, four-year award for one student, and a $50,000 gift will permanently endow an award to provide one student an annual stipend for four years. Endowed FEAs can be named in memory or honor of a person, class or organization of the donor's choice.
FEA gifts to the Texas A&M Foundation are tax-deductible and may be made in the form of cash, securities, real estate or other real property. Many individuals choose to utilize their employers' matching gift programs to support their FEA.
Corporations including ConocoPhillips, Ford Motor Co. and Caterpillar generously support the FEA program, as well as foundations and organizations such as the Houston A&M Club. Download our brochure to learn more about how your corporation or foundation can support an FEA scholarship.

Receiving a Foundation Excellence Award
Legal residents of the United States who are entering freshmen, currently-enrolled students at TAMU-College Station or transfer students are eligible for an FEA. Recipients are awarded the scholarship from under-represented groups, including minorities and students from economically or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. FEA scholars must attend A&M's College Station campus.
“My Foundation Excellence Award helped my dream of attending Texas A&M come true and made me realize there are people out there who appreciate hard work and ambition. I will be forever thankful for the opportunities this scholarship provided.”
