Carolyn Wolfman-Estrada has established the Carolyn Wolfman-Estrada ’12 Endowed Scholarship. Distributions from this endowment will be used to provide one or more scholarships to full-time students with financial need, in good standing, pursuing an undergraduate degree in the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University.
Wolfman-Estrada said she chose to attend Texas A&M because of the many opportunities that it provided. “Being at a big school meant that I could choose from a wide range of courses and experiences,” she said. “My time at Texas A&M provided the groundwork for the things I have been able to accomplish in my career. I learned engineering fundamentals, I worked in many research labs, and I developed a love for travel after studying abroad in Spain and visiting Texas A&M University at Qatar.”
Wolfman-Estrada added preferences for her endowment to be awarded to students in the College of Engineering who are members of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers or the National Society of Black Engineers. “I was inspired to establish this gift because of the scholarships I received during my time at Texas A&M,” she said.
“Because I was not preoccupied with work and financial struggles, I was able to participate in extracurricular activities like research and travel. My participation in those activities influenced my decision to go to graduate school and work in my current industry.”
Wolfman-Estrada believes it is important for her to pay forward the generosity she received at Texas A&M. “Because of others’ generosity and the types of scholarships I received at Texas A&M, I have been able to make all of my dreams come true,” she said. “I hope I can give that gift to someone else.”
Ultimately, Wolfman-Estrada hopes that the students who receive this gift are able to have the freedom to pursue all of their interests and dreams.
Wolfman-Estrada graduated from Texas A&M in 2012 with her degree in mechanical engineering. She earned her master’s degree in mechanical engineering from Stanford University in 2014. The same year, Wolfman-Estrada started at Apple as an engineering program manager and continues in that position today. She focuses on iPhone and AirTag technologies and resides in the San Francisco area.

How to Give
