The Division of Research funds the PESCA Grant Program to support significant research and scholarly projects that have the potential to lead to the awarding of external funding by agencies and endowments such as major federal research funding agencies, national endowments, institutes, foundations and councils.

A variety of activities are eligible for funding including travel for research and to collections and libraries, access to data resources, graduate student support, and seed funding to support application for federal and other national-level grants.



All Texas A&M University PI eligible faculty are eligible to apply for this grant. Faculty are encouraged to submit either single or multi-authored proposals. A faculty member’s name may not appear on more than one proposal submission, and a principal investigator may receive no more than two PESCA grant awards during a contiguous five-year period.

The maximum award amount is $10,000 for single-authored proposals; $18,000 for co-authored proposals; and $25,000 for proposals with three or more authors.
