Scholarship Applications

HAVE CONCLUDED FOR 2024

The 2024 Scholarship period will begin on December 15, 2023 and will cease on March 15, 2024.

 

The Collin County Aggie Moms Club is committed to offering students available scholarships to assist them financially in meeting their educational goals. Over the last four years, CCAM has awarded an average of 16 annual scholarships. We are committed to assisting students in meeting their educational goals. Every year it takes dozens of volunteers to support this endeavor. Annual club fundraising activities have a direct impact on the number of scholarships we can provide.

In 2023, we were able to provide 19 scholarships in the amount of $1,000 to freshmen, transfer, and current A&M students! In addition to our annual awards, we also provide two 4-year endowments through the Texas A&M Foundation and are currently working on funding a third. Our simple eligibility requirements, coupled with our scoring categories of Character, Leadership, Aggie Spirit, Academics, and Volunteerism, help us to determine the best applicants each year.

Donation Results

OUR 2024 DONATIONS:

$35,500 donated
to Texas A&M University 


While we had many successes this year, we also had adversity. Our Board Members dealt with illnesses/disease/breast cancer, caring for parents, parent illness, familial death, divorce, job loss/changes, moving homes, burnout, and other challenges. We started with a nearly full Board of Directors and ended with a few dropping out. We also had a few board members take on multiple roles. All-in-all, the year encompassed the “Better Together” theme as it took an entire team of volunteers to keep the CCAM events and programs fun and engaging for our membership! Plus, we achieved our financial goals and mission of awarding $13,500.00 in scholarships, paid $5,000.00 towards funding our 3rd Endowment Scholarship, and pledged to send $17,000.00 in funds to a list of Texas A&M student organizations as voted on by our members. It has been with your help as members, volunteers, donors, friends, and leaders that we have had a full schedule of successful events and programs. THANK YOU for your time and patronage! Congratulations to all!
