The Texas A&M Foundation is a nonprofit organization that solicits and manages investments in academics and leadership programs to enhance Texas A&M’s capability to be among the best universities.
The Texas A&M Foundation Board of Trustees awarded December 2014 graduate Minhtuan Nguyen with its third Outstanding Student Award at Miramont Country Club in Bryan.
A mechanical engineering major with a minor in petroleum engineering, Nguyen was extremely involved in campus activities. Nguyen said that these scholarships allowed him to finance his education at Texas A&M and keep his focus in the classroom instead of worrying about working during school. He hopes in the future to fund a scholarship that would support students like him.
