The Austin Texas A&M University Mothers’ Club is one of more than one hundred Aggie Moms Clubs across the country. We are organized exclusively for charitable and educational and social purposes. “We strive by individual and united effort to contribute in every way to the welfare of the students at Texas A&M University and to cooperate with the University in maintaining a high standard of moral conduct and intellectual attainment….” and we make new friends and have fun in the process!
Aggie Moms are proud, proud of Texas A&M University, proud of the daughters and sons they send to Texas A&M and proud of making a contribution: to the education of their Aggies, to the future ofTexas A&M University and to the future of the Great State of Texas.
The Austin Texas A & M University Mothers’ Club was founded on November 10, 1938. In a town known for its burnt orange, the Aggie Maroon is a strong presence. Just as Mrs. Peoples wished to improve on the life of the young cadets, so do the mothers of all our current students.
Our goals include raising money and providing scholarships, educating the moms of Texas A&M students about the many aspects of Texas A&M, and providing fellowship opportunities for Aggie moms.
Scholarships and Fundraising
The Austin Texas A&M University Mothers’ Club is a local 501 (c) (3) whose mission and passion is to provide scholarships to outstanding current Texas A&M students. Like the Capital City A&M Club, we focus on Austin Students. The difference is that we award scholarships to current full time students with 30 or more hours to help them offset some of the expenses of college. Over the past 30 years, we have awarded over $250,000 in scholarships to Aggies!
The Austin Aggie Moms awarded over $12,000 to 12 Austin Aggies in 2019! The club has funded three Texas A&M Foundation Endowed Scholarships: The Opportunity Award, The Southerland Aggie Leader Scholarship, and the Transfer Student Scholarship. We started our fourth endowment in 2018: a scholarship for an Austin Aggie Veteran.
We raise money from our Singing Cadets concert and jewelry sales to fund scholarships.
Austin Aggie Moms as we are affectionately known, meet once a month for fun, fellowship and food. We bring in speakers from the University to give us updates on what is happening on campus, opportunities for our students and many other interesting topics. Twice a year our club offers Goody Bags to parents for our students and delivers them to College Station so they will have a little something extra before finals.
Austin Aggie moms organize outings to many types of places for fun, including shopping in Salado, bowling, and just having lunch out!
