To be eligible for consideration, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Score 1360 or higher composite on the new SAT (1300 on the old) or 30 or better on the ACT.
  • Complete the scholarship section of the ApplyTexas Application and send your official SAT/ACT test scores (including writing portion) and an official high school transcript (including class size and rank) to the Texas A&M Admissions Office. Completing this process not only places you in the review pool for all Mays scholarships, but also for the University’s merit-based scholarships.
  • The deadline for all scholarship applications is December 1.

Students awarded a scholarship from Mays Business School will be notified by mail and email in early March. Scholarships will also be added to your Financial Aid Portal.
