Hurricane Harvey Assistance Program

The Qatar Harvey Fund Assistance Program was created to assist Texas A&M University students who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey.  Scholarship funds are being used to assist students with a portion of tuition, fees, books, living expenses or emergency expenses for students who were negatively impacted after the hurricane impeding their pursuit of a degree. We want students to have the ability to stay in school and make progress towards a degree.

  • Medications and other costs related to medical care
  • Books and other essential academic expenses
  • Safety needs (i.e. changing a lock)
  • Assistance with replacement of essential personal belongings due to fire, theft, or natural disaster
  • Travel costs related to a death or illness in the immediate family
  • Assistance with rent, utilities, food and other essential household expenses
