Scholarships, Internships, and More"TAME allowed me to explore the STEM fields, and have causal fun with math and science. I looked forward to competitions because I loved seeing new ideas and innovations come from peers, and adults. TAME helped me explore my interest in science, which led to my decision to work in medicine. TAME helped me solidify my desire to be a Physician Assistant, because I enjoyed group collaboration, during group projects, and realized I always tend to score higher in science." -- Texas A&M Student, TAME Scholar

Available scholarships vary year to year, but generally include:
The TAME Freshman Scholarship is awarded each year to a high school senior and TAME club member who has completed the Math and Science Competition and who will attend an accredited college or university to study a STEM subject. The scholarship amount varies based on available funding.
The TAME Evergreen Scholarship is offered to TAME scholars in their second to fourth year of study in a STEM field at an accredited college or university. The scholarship amount varies based on available funding.
The TAME TAMU Scholarship is a scholarship awarded each year to a high school senior and TAME club member who has completed the Math and Science Competition and who will attend Texas A&M University (TAMU) to study a STEM subject. The scholarship amount varies based on available funding.
In addition, TAME partner universities occasionally offer scholarships to TAME students. Please see our Apply for a Scholarship page or contact TAME at (512) 471-6100 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for current opportunities.
In addition to our scholarships, TAME offers yearly employment opportunities for regional interns to work with TAME. Our regional interns are students at our partner universities. Working with the TAME state office and their regional chapter, they help to support and expand TAME programming and often serve as role models to current TAME club students.
