Director's Welcome

Howdy! Welcome to the Sponsored Student Programs website. Texas A&M University is very proud to have a long established unit dedicated to serving international sponsored students and their sponsors. With over 500 currently enrolled sponsored students representing 65 countries and 3000 plus former sponsored students, we embody diversity with our students, past and present, from every region of the world. At Texas A&M, sponsored students become actively involved in campus activities sharing their diverse and rich cultural heritages with their fellow Aggies as well as reaching out into the community to enhance global awareness. Many of our former sponsored students have become prominent leaders in government, business, and education following their graduation carrying forth the Aggie tradition of excellence and service. For those considering Texas A&M, I encourage you to think about an exciting place where sponsored international students are very much a part of the Aggie tradition while representing the greatest diversity not only among nations but academic disciplines as well.

Gig Em!
