Scholarships & Financial Aid
Each year, the College of Science awards over $350,000 to almost 200 students across the college.
In addition, we offer competitive financial stipends of $1,000 to National Merit and Hispanic Scholars, which can potentially qualify you for in-state tuition.
Students who are interested in receiving financial aid and scholarships from Texas A&M University must have a FASFA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) on file and a completed scholarship application. To become eligible for scholarships as an incoming student, applicants must complete the scholarship portion on the ApplyTexas application.
The College of Science fully funds virtually all doctoral graduate students with competitive financial support packages. This support includes stipend, tuition payments and healthcare benefits, which are associated with employment as graduate research or teaching assistantships. Taking into account the possibility of paid or waived tuition, benefits and stipends, total compensation for a College of Science graduate student can approach $35,000 per year.
Three types of graduate assistantships (teaching, research, non-teaching) are available through the college and its departments, as well as in university-affiliated agencies and administrative offices. Salaries range from $17,000 to $25,000 per year, depending on the department and position.
In addition, more than $500,000 of Texas A&M fellowships are allocated to science graduate students annually. Our students are also highly competitive for National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation and other foundation-funded graduate fellowships and awards.
