Letter from the Dean

We are pleased that you have chosen, or are considering, Texas A&M University and, more specifically, the College of Architecture, as the institution of higher learning that will prepare you to face the challenges of the 21st century in your selected field of study.

As one of the largest colleges of architecture in the United States, we have established a strong, worldwide reputation through numerous contributions of our diverse and talented faculty, staff, students, and former students.

We are fortunate that many of our successful graduates have given back to the college to ensure that future students have the same educational opportunities presented to them. Most of these gifts are in the form of scholarships, which are awarded each year during departmental scholarship and awards ceremonies.

This website was prepared to make you aware of the various scholarships for which you may become eligible as a student. You will find information regarding the application and selection process used each year for each one.

I encourage you to apply for all the scholarships that pertain to your major. We want you to have as many resources as possible to complete your educational goals and succeed professionally. Perhaps one day, your name will be in this directory as one more member of this select community of former students and friends of the college who, through their generosity, help us forge the next generation of Aggies making a difference in the various professional disciplines represented in our college.


Sincerely,

Jorge Vanegas
Dean of the College of Architecture

 


  

Scholarships FAQ

 

How do I qualify for the College of Architecture scholarships?

All undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in the College of Architecture who meet academic standards are eligible for competitive scholarships based on the criteria of each scholarship. If the donor of the scholarship did not specify any special criteria, the selection is based on academic achievement and financial need. Additional factors for selection include (but are not limited to) leadership, community service and University extracurricular activities. The size of the awards varies, but the range is typically between $500 and $2,000 for one academic year. Out-of-state students who receive competitive scholarships valued at $4,000 or more per year qualify for a waiver of non-resident tuition.


Sounds good. But how do I apply?

Students interested in applying for a scholarship through the College of Architecture should complete an application obtained from the individual departments. Applications are normally due on January 31 of each year.


So who decides whether or not I get a scholarship?

The selection of recipients is determined by a departmental committee comprised of a chair, faculty members and, in some cases, students.

Are assistantships available?

Yes. Graduate students wanting to be considered for an assistantship should address a letter of intent to the head of their department indicating areas of interest. A resume should also be submitted. Teaching, non-teaching and research assistantships require service up to 20 hours per week. To satisfy University requirements, individuals must be registered for a minimum of nine credit hours of academic work per semester and six credit hours during the summer. Out-of-state students who are awarded assistantships will qualify for a non-resident tuition exemption only for the semester(s) employed.
