Typically students must complete 24 hours total, at Texas A&M University, in the Fall/Spring semesters preceding the award. (Although, for some scholarships, more hours are required.) Students must meet classification requirements at the time of application. Often, financial need as determined by Student Financial Aid Department is taken into consideration.

Applications are now open for the 2015 Globetrotter Grant.  The grant will award $1,500 to an adventurous TAMU student who plans to travel outside the United States.

The grant supplements a trip you have planned and organized.  You can use the funds for transportation to and from the U.S., travel within your destination country/countries, food, housing, entrance fees, and/or incidentals or indulgences that add to the pleasure of your trip or to your memories of it.  If you are participating in a study-abroad program, you may use the grant for independent travel before, during, or after your program but not for the program itself.
