Scholarships and Financial Aid

Scholarships for Sophomore and Junior Math Majors

The Math Department recently established funds to provide Academic Achievement in Mathematics Scholarships for current Math Majors. These scholarships are to be awarded to students demonstrating academic excellence in Mathematics. They are one year scholarships and the amount is dependent upon available departmental funds. The primary consideration in awarding these scholarships is academic achievement; however, activities and leadership may also be considered. Applications are available online through the College of Science from October 15 - February 1 each year. The online application can be found by choosing "College of Science" at: College of Science Online Application.

Scholarship Programs for Education Majors

The TAMU Education Scholarship Programs Page is a site for future Math teachers looking for scholarships and scholar loan programs. A scholar loan program starts out as a loan, but each year you teach at a "needy" school district (for math, that means almost anywhere in Texas), a portion of the loan is forgiven.
