Why Give

Some of the best and brightest high school students can't afford today's tuition without scholarships and new construction rarely occurs without the generous support of our donors. The gifts we receive help determine the future of our department by helping us to encourage and attract the best and brightest students as well as obtain and retain the best faculty. Your generous gift to Texas A&M Engineering helps to ensure continued engineering excellence.

Your gift can enhance one of four areas of Texas A&M:

  • Students
    Support Texas A&M engineering students through scholarships and fellowships. Donors may contribute to existing programs or design a scholarship/fellowship based on their own criteria.
  • Faculty
    Top-notch faculty members attract not only other superb professors but also the best quality students. Invest in the potential of one faculty member and you affect the lives of hundreds of students.
  • College
    An endowed discretionary gift that allows the dean or department head to choose how best to use your gift is especially valuable and can help shape the future of your college.
  • Facilities
    To accommodate our growth and continue to attract the best and brightest students and faculty, construction and maintenance of our facilities is critical. Construction is set to begin on the Engineering Education Complex in Spring 2015.
