It is the goal of the Emerald Coast A&M Club for every deserving student from this area at Texas A&M to receive a merit scholarship of $1,000 or more.  Every local high school graduate gives up full or three-fourths full scholarships through the Florida Scholars programs (Bright Futures) to forgo a Florida university and go to Texas A&M.  The difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition is approximately $17,000 per school year for a student taking 14 hours each semester.   We will provide whatever help students need to find qualifying scholarships.
