National Scholars

Texas A&M, ranking 9th nationwide for public enrollment of National Merit Scholars, is becoming the hub for more high-achieving students every year. Our goal is to provide students with a college experience that will not only stimulate their intellect, but broaden their perspective and encourage their success. By making us their first choice, National Scholars have access to exclusive scholarship packages and an inside look at campus through special programs.
