Texas A&M and the VRSC are committed to offering military affiliated students a wide range of opportunities to learn, grow, succeed, and excel. Therefore, the University and the VRSC are proud to offer many different types of scholarships to incoming student veterans.
VRSC Scholarship Program
The VRSC Scholarship Program is designed to provide financial assistance to student veterans, student combat veterans and spouses of student veterans with the greatest need. VRSC scholarships will be offered to qualified applicants who are full time students that have completed at least one semester at Texas A&M University. All veterans are encouraged to apply for these scholarships each year. To qualify for the VRSC Scholarships, fill out the VRSC Scholarship Application and turn it in to the VRSC with a copy of your DD214 or Character of Service Memorandum.

You must be a full time student, undergraduate or graduate (minimum of 12 hours per semester for undergraduate and 9 hours per semester for graduate) who has completed at least one semester at Texas A&M University, College Station.
