Graduate Diversity Fellowships: This fellowship is by faculty nomination only. (Students do not apply for this fellowship.) Diversity at Texas A&M University is an indispensable component of academic excellence. The TAMU Graduate Diversity Excellence Fellowship seeks to increase the diversity of the graduate student population at Texas A&M University. The Fellowship also aims to support the development of high achieving scholars who show promise for distinguished careers and whose life, research experiences and/or employment background will contribute significantly to academic excellence at TAMU and will maximize the educational benefits of diversity for all students.
National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship: The National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) is intended to provide support for those at the beginning of their graduate career and individuals seeking to reenter graduate studies following an interruption of at least two consecutive years. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in fields within NSF’s mission. The GRFP provides up to three years of support for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant achievements in science and engineering research.
Sigma Xi Grants-in-Aid Research Program: The program awards grants of up to $1,000 to students from most areas of the sciences and engineering. Designated funds from the National Academy of Sciences allow for grants of up to $5,000 for astronomy research and $2,500 for vision-related research. Students use the funding to pay for travel expenses to and from a research site, or for purchase of non-standard laboratory equipment necessary to complete a specific research project.
Pathways to the Doctorate Fellowship: The Pathways to the Doctorate represents a partnership between OGAPS and TAMU faculty members. The goals of the Pathways to the Doctorate Fellowship program are to recruit into and graduate from TAMU doctoral programs high quality and diverse students who received their baccalaureate degrees from Texas A&M System institutions and who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
Dissertation Fellowship: The Texas A&M University Office of Graduate and Professional Studies offers a Dissertation Fellowship to support students in the dissertation phase of their degree program. This fellowship is intended to support doctoral students in the final analysis of the research topic and the final writing of the dissertation. This fellowship is NOT intended to finance data collection or the completion of doctoral coursework. Priority goes to doctoral students whose primary financial support is NOT related to their research (e.g. GANT, GAL, GAT, self-funded). Students who have funding related to their dissertation research will be least likely to receive this fellowship.
