In addition to scholarships offered at the university level, the Department of Geology and Geophysics offers a variety of scholarships funded by individual and corporate donations. These scholarships, which are based primarily on scholastic achievement, can be awarded "on top of" other awards an individual may receive from the University or other sources.
For students who are not residents of Texas, these scholarships are worth much more because they waive out-of-state tuition. Scholarships for incoming freshmen will be renewed for four years provided that the student maintains at least a 3.0 grade point average. When you apply for admission to Texas A&M, majoring in Geology, Geophysics, or Earth Science, you will be automatically considered for departmental academic-based scholarships.
For more information about College of Geosciences scholarships, see undergraduate scholarships in the College of Geosciences and available graduate scholarships in the College of Geosciences.
