Texas A&M is committed to recruiting and retaining outstanding undergraduates from historically disadvantaged groups often underserved in the Aggie student body, including minority students and those who face significant economic or educational hurdles. Since 1999, the Foundation Excellence Award (FEA) has helped the university in these efforts by awarding meaningful financial support to underserved Aggies who need it most.
Recognizing the program’s effectiveness, the university has established a goal to award several hundred new FEA scholarships annually to support 1,500 more students by fall 2029. As an added incentive, the President’s Office has pledged a limited number of matching funds available annually through 2029 for eligible FEA scholarships.
Through these matching funds, you can double your donation of $10,000 to create a $20,000 pass-through FEA scholarship that will grant a student recipient an annual stipend of $5,000 for four years. For a perpetual impact, however, individuals and corporations can endow a $50,000 FEA that will help deserving students write their own Aggie stories for generations. If you pay your gift in full within one year, the university will match the earnings of your endowment during its first four years to generate a larger annual stipend for your student recipient during that initial period.
