Judicial Watch: Texas A&M Received Almost $500 Million in Grants from Qatar
According to records requested by Judicial Watch, Texas A&M University received nearly $500 million in grants and contracts from the Qatar regime. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton commented, “Now we know why terrorist-linked Qatar has fought us in court to hide its financial support for Texas A&M — which we just found out is nearly a half billion dollars.”
Records obtained by Judicial Watch under the Texas Public Information Act indicate that Texas A&M received $485,811,921.33 in grants and contracts from the Qatar Foundation.
Judicial Watch pointed out what appears to be discrepancies between what is listed in the gift reporting received from Texas A&M and what was reported by the school to the federal foreign gift reporting system.
“For instance, Texas A&M’s gift record for January 1, 2013 – May 22, 2018, only lists a total of $69,844.41 from the Qatar Foundation, whereas the Department of Education’s database shows a total of over $47 million for the same period,” Judicial Watch noted.
