Midnight Pell is an educational podcast produced by Scholarships & Financial Aid at Texas A&M University.
Understanding how to pay for college can sometimes be confusing. We hope this podcast can serve as a tool to equip current and future students with the knowledge to responsibly pay for their degree. Every month, hosts Jake Mason and Emily Spaulding will break down a different scholarship or financial aid process and answer common questions.
This podcast combines information on specific Texas A&M policies with more general financial aid information that is transferable from campus to campus. The marriage between these two topics led to our name, Midnight Pell, which combines a beloved tradition here at A&M, Midnight Yell Practice, with a common financial aid offer, the Federal Pell Grant.
Whether you’re a prospective or current Aggie, or just someone who needs a little scholarships & financial aid explanation, join us every month for new episodes of Midnight Pell.
