A Legacy’s Starting Point

The merit-based President’s Endowed Scholarship (PES) program has been inspiring high school seniors to make Texas A&M their school of choice since 1968.

The two President's Endowed Scholarships funded by the Aggie Women Network, are awarded on academic achievement and demonstrated student leadership.  All recipients are selected by a Texas A&M University anonymous committee and the names are sent to the Texas A&M Foundation.  All students are eligible, but preference is given to females.

The Aggie Women Network is committed to giving back and helping the next generation of Aggie women. By endowing these two scholarships, we hope to demonstrate our commitment to supporting students and future Aggie women.

Scholarship Requirements:

  • Excellence in academic achievement
  • Demonstrated student leadership
  • To remain eligible, students must maintain a 3.5 overall GPA

For more information on scholarship requirements, visit the  Texas A&M Scholarships and Financial Aid page.

 The Scholarship Includes:

  • $3,000 per year, for four years
  • One-time $1,000 scholarship to be used for a Texas A&M-approved education abroad experience

Apply now through the Apply Texas Application or the Coalition Application.

The application deadline for the fall semester is December 1. However, if the deadline falls on a weekend, the application will remain open until 11:58 p.m. (CST) on the following Monday.

Meet Dalilah Zuniga

Dalilah Zuniga - Aggie Women Network's seventh Presidential Endowed Scholar. 

Growing up I have always felt like I've wanted to dedicate my life to helping others.  I was born and raised in a God-fearing home, by my amazing parents.  I've watched as my parents have become older and have grown to appreciate the amazing opportunity that they have given me.  My dad grew up in the streets of Mexico, worrying about things as simple as if he would have food for dinner, while my mom grew up one of eight children in a missionary home.  Both of them grew up thinking that they did not have the choice to go to college because they didn't have the money.  Although my parents are unable to help me financially, they have given me important values that will most certainly lead to success:  passion, perseverance, and dedication.  I believe that I have been privileged with the gift of being academically powerful; however, my academic success would be impossible without a passion for progress.  I'm the first born and now I will be a first-generation college student.  I plan to pursue Texas A&M's track for the traditional bachelors in science of nursing to become a registered nurse (BSN RN).  Beyond this, I hope to further my education later on to become a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA).  This future career will allow me to nor only flourish in studying something I love, STEM, but will also create a work environment where my primary job is to care for others, with compassion and empathy.  I hope to impact the world not only with the medical care I can give to others, but also with the positive influence I can have on others lives.  A big smile and a caring heart can go a long way, even in brief encounters.
