Tips on Applying for a Scholarship from the Katy A&M Club
We are glad you want to attend Texas A&M and we wish you success in your college career.
We evaluate every scholarship application very carefully. We choose our recipients based on
financial need, academic achievement, and general factors such as motivation, community
service, letters of recommendation, and the impression that your application provides to us.
We only know about your motivation, community service, and you as a person from what you
tell us about yourself, and how you tell us about yourself. Both are important and can
influence our decision.

We hope these tips and frequently asked questions will be helpful to you. While this advice
may seem obvious, we receive applications every year that include mistakes covered here.

  • Start working on this application early. We can tell who spent time and effort on the application and who did not. The short essays will require time to do well.
  •  Make it easy for the committee to learn about you – use the electronic Word document.  Every year we receive scholarship applications from students who hand-write the application; however, a typed application is definitely more professional. If you handwrite your application, please print and use a black pen.
  • Do some research about A&M. Even if everyone in your family graduated from A&M, browse through some recent publications and/or visit the A&M website at https://www.tamu.edu/.
  • Write clearly. You do not have to write prize-winning prose; just give us clear and complete sentences in formal English. Write something and then read it aloud to see how it sounds. If you make careless errors, we will conclude that you do not take the scholarship seriously.
  •  When you are finished, proofread your application. Read it aloud. Proofread it again!
