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.
Emerald Coast Scholarships
The Emerald Coast A&M Club has established an endowed scholarship at Texas A&M for Emerald Coast scholars. The scholarship was established through the Texas A&M Foundation and is administered by the TAMU Financial Aid Office. The fund reached $27K in 2017 and now generates $1,200 in scholarships each year in perpetuity for Emerald Coast scholars.
To qualify for the scholarship you must be a full-time student in good standing academically and live in the FL panhandle (zip codes starting in either 324 or 325). Deadline for applying is 1 December. Scholarship will be awarded by Texas A&M (not ECAMC officers) in July for the fall semester. The following link is provided to start the process https://www.applytexas.org/adappc/gen/c_start.WBX. If you have any questions about the application and endowed scholarship sign up contact Financial Aide Office at (979) 845-3236 or firstname.lastname@example.org
