Collin County Aggie Moms Club committed to endowing a scholarship fund with the Texas A&M University Foundation in 2011 and again in 2014. Both were 5-year pledges to donate $25,000 to endow each fund. Distributions from the endowments will be used to fund scholarships in our name. The Foundation and the Financial Aid Office from Texas A&M University selects our scholarship recipients based on the preferences provided from our club. We met our goal for endowed scholarship #1 within four years. Whoop! We are on track to reach our goal for the second endowed scholarship. Please see the Texas A&M Scholarships page for more details. https://scholarships.tamu.edu/
