Panther RISE Grant Program (PRISE)
A collaboration 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.
As federal funding agencies significantly support large-scale, multidisciplinary research and innovation projects of national and global importance, the PRISE program affords an invaluable opportunity to the researchers between the two institutions to better position themselves in being successful in collaborative efforts, including obtaining competitive grants from external agencies.
