Monschke scholarship to aid aerospace undergraduates

Richard Monschke of Fort Worth, Texas, has endowed a $25,000 scholarship designed for students pursuing a degree in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University.

“We are grateful for Mr. Monschke’s support of the aerospace department and its students,” said Andy Acker, senior director of development for the Texas A&M Foundation. “The support we receive from our former students is vital to the college’s efforts to provide students with affordable educational opportunities.”

Undergraduate students wishing to apply for the Richard A. Monschke ’65 Scholarship should be member of the Corps of Cadets and a graduate of a Texas high school. Recipients will be selected in accordance with university policy on the basis of academic achievement and extracurricular involvement.

Monschke earned his bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering in 1965 and was a member of the Corps during his time as a student.
