Matthew P. Rowan '04 Endowed Study Abroad Scholarship

Texas A&M chemistry graduate Dr. Matthew P. Rowan '04 was committed to helping others. Despite his young age, he already was enjoying a successful and promising dual career as a dynamic researcher for the United States Army and a popular college chemistry professor in the San Antonio area when his life was cut short in a July 30, 2016, hot air balloon accident near Lockhart, Texas.

Rowan’s legacy of commitment will live on through future generations of Aggie students pursuing their own STEM careers with the same passion and success that he epitomized, thanks to multiple endowments established in tribute through the Texas A&M Foundation, including one to support study abroad experiences in chemistry.

Texas A&M has more students studying abroad than any other public university in the nation, according to a report by the Institute of International Education (IIE). The choices are almost as varied as the student and the desired experience, which can be as short as a week or as long as an academic year.

Join Texas A&M Chemistry in our commitment to study abroad and to honoring Matt's memory by helping us create a world of possibility for Aggie chemistry students interested in expanding their career and cultural horizons through study abroad.
