The 2012-2013 College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Student Council members voted, unanimously, to give a $25,000 endowment to the Texas A&M Foundation in order to create the C.O.A.L.S. Council Scholarship. It was the intention of the Council to give back to students within the college and the first $1,000 scholarship was awarded to a continuing student for the 2013-2014 academic year.
