National Recognition Scholars admitted for Fall 2021 and later are considered for the following.
*The number of offers made by Texas A&M University are subject to fund availability. This is not a guaranteed scholarship.
National Recognition Scholarships are offered to the most competitive students who are named either a National Hispanic, National African American, National Native & Indigenous, or National Rural & Small-Town Scholars by The College Board and complete the scholarship application for Texas A&M. This scholarship is funded by Texas A&M University.
Students named to a national recognition program who are admitted for the fall will also compete for other freshman scholarship opportunities which are offered in February of the student’s high school senior year. These scholarships are able to be added to the scholarships listed above.
*The National Recognition Scholarship is considered an “eligible scholarship” for the purpose of determining the eligibility of non-residents (students who are not residents of Texas) for the non-resident tuition waiver. Students must have a minimum of $4,000 of eligible scholarships awarded by Texas A&M each academic year to qualify for the waiver. Please see the Non-Resident Tuition Waiver for more information.
