The Corps of Cadets offers scholarships ranging in value from $1,000 - $20,000 that carry no military obligation.
Corps scholarships are both need and merit based, with many reserved for students entering the Corps as freshmen cadets. In addition, most Corps scholarships qualify non-Texas residents for a non-resident tuition waiver.

High school students should apply during their senior year in high school. In order to be considered for an Early Award, (prior to May 1st of their senior year), prospective cadets must complete the ApplyTexas application process, and either have attended or be scheduled to attend one the Corps Recruiting Programs; such as Spend the Night with the Corps, JCAP, Aggie Eagle etc. Please note that the deadline for submitting the ApplyTexas Scholarship Application is December 1st. We do NOT have a separate scholarship application; filling out and submitting the ApplyTexas application will make you eligible for early consideration for Corps Scholarships as well as the numerous other scholarships available to all students who attend Texas A&M.
For those prospective cadets who miss the December 1st deadline, or are unable to attend one of our recruiting programs, you will still be considered for a scholarship. These prospective cadets will be considered after May 1st. There is nothing extra that needs to be submitted, these students will be considered using information from their Admissions Application.
At the beginning of the semester that you are offered a Corps Scholarship you will be required to sign a contract outlining the following requirements:
Corps Scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit and/or financial need. The criteria we use for merit are the same as those used by the Admissions Office to determine which applicants are offered admission (i.e. SAT/ACT scores, HS rank, extracurricular activities). To be considered for a scholarship based on financial need, you must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This can be done on-line at www.fafsa.gov.
For those who have submitted the Texas Common Scholarship Application, and are registered with the Corps Recruiting Office, notification will go out approximately every 3 weeks starting in late February, and continue through May. These notifications are sent via U. S. Mail from the Scholarship and Financial Aid (SFA) office of the university. The notifications include all financial aid from the university that is being offered, including Corps Scholarships. For those who miss the December 1st deadline, or decide to join the Corps at a later date, you will be considered for a Corps Scholarship usually after May 1st. Because we do not have a deadline to apply for a Corps Scholarship, the awarding process for incoming freshmen will continue throughout the summer, and even into the first several weeks of the Fall Semester
Transfer students can also apply for admission and scholarships at ApplyTexas.org As the deadline for transfer students are different and since most transfer students entering the Corps have at least one year of college, the awarding process and criteria is slightly different. The Scholarship Selection Committee will consider transfer students for scholarships separately in early August or January of the semester they are entering the Corps. The committee will use the same financial aid criteria, but in the case of merit based scholarships, will take into consideration your current College transcript and extra-curricular activities.
