Howdy Ags!

The Texas A&M Howdy Club (“Howdy Club”) in Houston would like to commend you for choosing to
attend Texas A&M University. Texas A&M is consistently rated as one of the best universities in the
world. This elite status is built on the foundation of superior facilities, world-class students, and strong
support from its Former Students.

Howdy Club, a Houston based Former Student organization, recognizes the determination and effort
necessary to succeed at Texas A&M. The Howdy Club mission statement is as follows:

             The Texas A&M Howdy Club is an organization dedicated to promoting and
             supporting education, professional growth, service, and scholarships among
                          Texas A&M University Alumni, Students, and Staff.

As our mission statement reads, Howdy Club provides scholarships to students who best exemplify the
“Aggie Spirit.” Howdy Club holds monthly social hours and other events where donations are
collected for the purpose of funding these scholarships. Scholarship awards are a one-time $1000
($500 in each of the Fall and Spring semesters). For more information concerning Howdy Club, the
scholarship fund or other Houston Area Aggie organizations, you can visit our website at
http://www.howdyclub.com/.

Scholarships are limited to those meeting the academic requirements of the University and are
entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year during 2009-2010 at Texas A&M University. This means
that all recipients must maintain a minimum overall grade point average of 2.0 and will be enrolled
as a full time student in Fall 2009 and Spring 2010. A full time student is defined as one enrolled in and
taking at least 12 hours at Texas A&M University. If a scholarship recipient is graduating in Spring 2010
and has less than 12 hours of coursework to meet degree requirements, the second portion of the
scholarship will still be granted, provided that the $500 is not in excess of the amount of tuition due to
the University. Your completed application must be postmarked no later than February 2, 2009.
Scholarship finalists will be contacted and required to attend an interview at Texas A&M on Saturday,
March 28, 2009. Please mail pages 2-6 of the application to the following address:

                                       Texas A&M Howdy Club

Good luck next year and Gig ‟Em!
