All qualified cadets attending AEP are eligible to compete for a Corps of Cadets scholarship, which carries no military obligation and may be used in conjunction with other scholarships. If a Corps Scholarship is awarded to a student who is not a resident of Texas, the recipient may qualify for in-state tuition. To claim the scholarship students must complete the scholarship section of the TAMU application (applytexas.org), gain and accept admission to TAMU, and join the Corps of Cadets.
AEP costs a non-refundable $35 per student. To register and learn more about attendance requirements, click on the button below and complete the online registration. After completing the online registration, your qualifications for attending the program will be reviewed. Very qualified Venture, Explorer, Sea Scouts as well as those scouts who are very close to completing their Gold / Eagle Scout / Stars and Stripes awards will be considered for attendance. A confirmation packet will then be mailed to you with the required forms. Your registration is not complete until we receive your required forms by fax or email. Due to a limited number of spots, prompt return of the forms is encouraged.
If traveling by bus or plane, please make your arrival/departure destination Bryan, Texas (bus) or College Station, Texas (air). We are unable to provide transportation to and from the Bryan Bus Station or the College Station airport (CLL), Easterwood Field, but taxis are available. A commercial shuttle service from Houston Intercontinental and Houston Hobby Airports to College Station is available (GroundShuttle.com), but you will need to make arrangements to be dropped off and picked up at the TAMU Corps of Cadets Center.
