The Austin Texas A&M University Mothers’ Club is one of more than 100 Aggie Moms Clubs across the country. We are organized exclusively for charitable, 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 of Texas A&M University, the daughters and sons they send to Texas A&M and making a contribution to the education of their Aggies, future of Texas 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 the university and providing fellowship opportunities for Aggie moms.
Scholarships and Fundraising
The Austin Texas A&M University Mothers’ Club is a local 501(c)(3) with a mission and passion to provide scholarships to outstanding current Texas A&M students. Like the Capital City A&M Club, we focus on Austin-based 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! Learn more about our current awardees and other scholarship opportunities here. We also 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 invite 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 that Aggie Moms can order for their students. Volunteers deliver them to College Station before finals for a special surprise.
Austin Aggie moms organize outings to many types of places for fun, including shopping in Salado, bowling or lunch at a local Austin restaurant!
