The state of Texas contributes limited amounts to Texas A&M’s graduate programs, so private support is essential. In technical fields such as chemical engineering or architecture — fields in which Aggies have always excelled — entry-level positions often require more than a bachelor’s degree. Whether they leave with master’s or doctoral degrees, Aggie grad students take their values with them to their workplaces and their new communities. Those who become professors share their Aggie work ethic and leadership skills with thousands more.
When you fund a named fellowship, you support a graduate student with yearly stipends. Graduate fellowship endowments can be started with a gift of $25,000, but the amount of the yearly award depends on the amount of your donation. For example, a $300,000 endowment could provide a recipient with a yearly award of approximately $12,000.
Contact the leadership of your academic department to learn about and apply for fellowship opportunities in your discipline.

“Because I graduated debt free and received funding for graduate school, I was able to pursue a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering.
The applications and potential impact of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) fascinate me, and I hope that the work I do will contribute to the field of MRI and add value to the lives of others.”
