Major Federal Research Awards


Listed below are some of our larger research awards at Texas A&M University (including A&M System agencies) funded directly by federal grants and funding bodies at $5 million and above. The list does not include awards funded by non-profit foundations or other entities that leverage federal funds to support research, of which there are many at Texas A&M. For example, the International Ocean Discovery Program is the University's largest funded research award, receiving more than $55 million per year over a ten year contract from the Consortium for Ocean Leadership—funds made possible through the National Science Foundation and other international partners.
