Since 1992, the Williamson County A&M Foundation (WCAMF) has provided $436,700 in scholarships to assist 145 students from Williamson County attending Texas A&M University with money raised from Fish Fry and other efforts. If you know of a high school student that will be attending Texas A&M in the fall, encourage them to apply. The applications deadline is April 1. Recipients will be introduced at Muster on April 22. More information can be found on our scholarship page.The Williamson County A&M Club (WCAMC), with the help of members, recently began efforts to endow a scholarship through the Texas A&M Foundation to ensure scholarship opportunities for students from Williamson County well into the future. Thanks to the generous efforts of our members, WCAMC is about $5,000 away from completing our first $25,000 scholarship endowment. Follow our progress on our endowment page and learn how you can help. Following that lead, WCAMF is working to establish additional endowed scholarships and has established a matching program to partner with Williamson County Aggies on these scholarships. Contact us if you are interested in finding out more about our matching program.
