Everyone always has the question on their mind of “what do my donations go for?”. The simple answer is SCHOLARSHIPS. Every year several Scholarships are awarded to current Texas A&M Students who best exemplify the “Aggie Spirit”. Yes, they truly bleed Maroon. The Scholarships awarded have made a large impact to these Aggies each year by helping with financial costs while attending Texas A&M.
These Scholarships can only be made possible each year by donations and other events hosted and held by Howdy Club. If you are a Former Student or someone who would like to help make these Scholarships a reality each year, come to one of our events or donate to the HowdyClub.
The Texas A&M Howdy Club (“Howdy Club”) would like to commend you for choosing to attend Texas A&M University. Texas A&M is an elite institution built on the foundation of superior academic programs, world-class students, and a second-to-none alumni network. But what makes Texas A&M different from any other elite university is the “other education” students receive while here - an education with unparalleled leadership opportunities, that builds men and women of character, and fosters a deep camaraderie and loyalty that lasts a life time.
The Howdy Club, a Houston-based Former Student organization, recognizes the determination and effort necessary to succeed at Texas A&M. The Howdy Club mission statement is as follows:
The Texas A&M Howdy Club is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to promoting and supporting education, professional growth, service, and scholarships among Texas A&M University Alumni, Students, and Staff.
In accordance with our mission, the Howdy Club provides scholarships to students who best exemplify the “Aggie Spirit.” Howdy Club holds monthly happy hours and other events where donations are collected for the purpose of funding these scholarships. For the 2020-2021 academic year, Howdy Club will award at least $32,000 in scholarships, in either $2,000 or $5,000 increments.
