In the past we have funded and awarded “local” scholarships to local students. Several years ago our foundation began looking into making a longer lasting impact for our scholarship program. We found that funding endowed scholarships would achieve this goal. Our foundation began a matching program with local families to endow scholarships managed by the Texas A&M Foundation. These endowments, once established will provide scholarship funding forever. If you, your family, or business are interested in our matching endowment opportunities please contact us we would be happy to share matching details.

A letter from our Scholarship Chair:
The Williamson County A&M Foundation is dedicated to providing scholarships for Williamson County seniors graduating from high school and planning to attend our alma mater. Not only are we dedicated to this endeavor, it is the singular focus of the organization.
The scholarship program began in the late 80’s under the leadership of Tommy Magness, in what was then the Georgetown-Sherrill A&M Club. From a modest $500 total award for a single student, through the growth of the club and generosity of its members, we have expanded our program to award multiple endowed scholarships annually. Our scholarships are given based on need, scholastic achievement, extracurricular activities and community involvement. The scholarship recipients are introduced and given their award at Muster each year.
The scholarships are funded by our annual Fish Fry held in May/June and through donations by club members and TAMU supporters. There are a tremendous number of deserving, talented and capable high school seniors that can benefit from your foresight and generosity.
We currently have many students on scholarship at the University and would like to increase that number. With your support, we can expand what is a very good program into an even better one. Please join me in continuing a vital tradition that strengthens our University with quality students.
Thank you for your support of this program and Gig ‘Em!
