Scholarships & Financial Aid


Each year, Texas A&M University joins colleges and universities across the country in recognizing the importance of the student employment experience during National Student Employment Week. As part of this celebration, Texas A&M has named a Campus and a Community Student Employee of the Year, as well as two recipients of the Class of ’56 Endowed Award.

Ethan Morse, class of 2020, an electrical engineering major from San Antonio, was honored as the 2020 Campus Student Employee of the Year. Morse serves as a student worker in the AggieFab Nanofabrication Facility, where he writes and develops process recipes, assists researchers who utilize the lab and helps train new lab users.

Allison Milby, class of 2020, a poultry science major from Magnolia, was recognized as the 2020 Community Student Employee of the Year. Milby works for AgriLife Research, Poultry Science, in the Biosafety Level 2 laboratory and the animal rearing facilities.

Morse and Milby will each receive a scholarship from The Association of Former Students.

On its 50th anniversary, The Texas A&M University Class of 1956 established the Class of ‘56 Student Endowed Awards to present students with a scholarship so they could work less and graduate sooner. Manisha Islam, class of 2021, a management information systems major, and Lee Pearman, class of 2021, an animal science major, were recognized as this year’s Class of ’56 Student Endowed Awards recipients.

Islam, of Cypress, serves as a student assistant for Scholarships & Financial Aid where she performs the imaging and processing of student financial aid documents.

Pearman, of Alto, who works as a student assistant for the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Veterinary Medical Extension Unit, serves as the coordinator for 4-H camps, contests, skill-a-thons and various tours.

The university sends it thanks and congratulations to all the award recipients.
