Texas A&M researchers can pursue external research funding from a variety of sources—state and federal government agencies, non-profit organizations, and corporations.
Texas A&M provides internal grants to inspire interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary collaborations on groundbreaking research. The university also uses funding to encourage partnerships with clinical affiliates.
Texas A&M is committed to helping faculty advance their research portfolio across all disciplines. These programs are designed to support the generation of preliminary data, pursue new directions or collaborations, or boost an existing collaboration toward a major proposal submission.
ADM provides resources to support the development or demonstrate the commercial potential of recent discoveries within the Texas A&M research enterprise. This $5 million program is open to researchers, faculty, staff, and students of Texas A&M University and three state agencies.
The Arts & Humanities Fellows Program was created to stimulate interactions among scholarly and artistic faculty at Texas A&M as well as nationally and internationally.
This new initiative includes Research Leadership Fellowships (RLF), which will develop junior faculty into the next research leaders, and Targeted Proposal Teams (TPT), which will grow new interdisciplinary research team collaborations and expand existing ones, among other key objectives.
The Research Development Fund (RDF) is utilized for strategic investments that support the total Texas A&M research enterprise and catalyze new ventures. This fund will support research across those administrative units participating in the fund.
The Panther RISE Grant Program (PRISE) is an agreement between Texas A&M Prairie View University and Texas A&M University to establish productive research and scholarly collaborations to better position themselves to pursue multidisciplinary research and innovation projects. The PRISE program is open to tenured/tenure-track faculty members from all disciplines.
