Research Opportunities

Texas A&M Opportunities

Research at Texas A&M University is prolific, and there is a significant amount of information on research funding available to graduate students. It is recommended that you ask your graduate advisor, department and colleagues about specific funding which may be available and appropriate for your field of study.

Please be certain to read the criteria and guidelines carefully for funding opportunities. Certain funding is applicable for graduate students, yet some of the funding information you find may not be intended for students.

The Office of Research Development (ORD) collects a significant amount of information about research funding opportunities. You can also find funding opportunities by category on the Research Development website.
