Institutional Scholarships

Texas A&M University-San Antonio awards scholarships to students that demonstrate academic achievement and merit. Some scholarships are need-based requiring a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Visit www.fafsa.ed.gov to complete your FAFSA. Applicants will be considered for all the scholarships in which they meet the criteria. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Additionally, meeting the application requirements and scholarship criteria does not guarantee a scholarship award.
