Process of Applying for a Scholarship
Students can apply for a variety of institutional scholarships though the A&M-San Antonio General Scholarship Application. One general application is applicable for a variety of scholarship opportunities. To submit the general application, a student must create an account with the online Scholarship Manager system and complete the online application. Supporting documents such as a letter of recommendation may be required. Each student will receive a confirmation email that his/her application was successfully submitted and an official scholarship notification letter with the final scholarship decision. Students should visit www.tamusa.edu/scholarships for a complete list of scholarships available and scholarship criteria.
Important Scholarship Information
The General Scholarship Application is valid for an entire academic year. An application submitted during fall would also be valid for spring awarding. Applicants will be considered for all the scholarships in which they meet the criteria.
Meeting the application requirements and scholarship criteria does not guarantee a scholarship award. Awards are determined by the availability of funds and committee review. Spelling, grammar, mechanics, and the overall completeness of the application will be considered during the selection process.
Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.
Federal regulations require that all financial resources are considered when determining each student’s eligibility for financial aid. Receipt of a scholarship may result in an adjustment to financial aid awards and may reduce student loans or other tuition grants.
After the scholarship application has been submitted, changes are not permitted.
