The most aggressive scholarship campaign in the history of the Texas A&M College of Agriculture and Life Sciences began in January 2023.
The campaign will create a series of $100,000 endowments as part of a large initiative for the College to recruit and support undergraduate students. These endowments will create numerous four-year scholarships of $4,000 or more per year.
To kick off the campaign and immediately begin supporting students in the fall of 2023, Jeffrey W. Savell, Ph.D., vice chancellor and dean of agriculture and life sciences, has pledged the College to fund 60 scholarships for 2023 and 2024 entering freshman, 30 scholarships for each year.
Focused on finding high-achieving students in Texas and beyond, the Dean’s Excellence Scholarships will support students who excel holistically and are pursuing bachelor’s degrees within the College.
The campaign’s first fundraising goal is to create at least 30 scholarship endowments by the end of 2023, Savell said.
“It’s an utmost priority for me to recruit the best and brightest students to the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences,” Savell said. “We want to make sure our students are set up for success as they graduate and begin their careers or go on to professional or graduate school.”
