External Scholarships

External scholarships are privately funded scholarships that are sponsored by private donors, professional organizations, foundations, and many other sources outside of Texas A&M University-Kingsville. These scholarships are not directly affiliated with Texas A&M University-Kingsville and the recipients may or may not be TAMUK students. The eligibility criteria  for external scholarships varies widely but generally include academic performance, community affiliations, financial need, or other unique criteria determined by the sponsoring individual or organization. To optimize these resources for our students, external scholarship opportunities are posted in Javelina Scholarships and on our facebook page.

If you would like to have your scholarship considered for inclusion, please email us at scholarships@tamuk.edu


Please note that Texas A&M University-Kingsville does not endose or certify legitimacy of any external scholarship listing. Texas A&M University-Kingsville does not guarantee accuracy or the timeliness of information found at any of the external scholarship links. It is critical that you verify the information, particularly where deadlines are concerned.

Avoid Scholarship Scams

Make sure you are aware of financial scams when applying for external scholarships. Avoid scholarship organizations that charge a fee to help you find scholarships. Most legitimate scholarship search engines and applications are free and should not ask for personal information such as a Social Security number, credit card number, or banking information.
