Texas A&M University-CONACYT: Collaborative Research Grant Program


Texas A&M University and the Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnologia (CONACYT) began the Collaborative Research Grant Program in 2001. This competitive, peer-reviewed program advances inter-institutional cooperation in science, technology, and scholarly activities through the complementary efforts of scientists and scholars from Texas A&M and Mexican institutions.


The Texas A&M University-CONACYT: Collaborative Research Grant Program marks a significant place in the strong history between a Texas university with a commitment to others and a Mexican government body with much of the same goals—improve lives, ensure economic stability, and make a difference for the future. CONACYT is Mexico's foremost agency for the support of research, both in Mexico and abroad.
