Partner with us.

Our students and faculty benefit greatly through program enhancements and scholarships that our former students and friends make possible. We greatly appreciate your support.

Biomedical Engineering Industry Alliance Fund

This fund is dedicated to promoting excellence in education and research in biomedical engineering through cultivating essential relationships between industry partners and our students and faculty. Gifts to this fund support key academic programs such as senior design and are non-endowed.


Biomedical Engineering Endowed Excellence Fund

This fund is dedicated to the development of the department and to ensuring excellence in its academic programs. Distributions from this fund provide for critical departmental activities not supported by state funding allocations. Project funding includes faculty recruiting, graduate and undergraduate scholarships, corporate relations, special events, faculty, staff and student awards, and innovative educational program development. Gifts to this fund can be endowed.


Undergraduate Scholarships

This fund is dedicated to supporting the educational endeavors of our undergraduate students.


Graduate Scholarship

This fund is dedicated to supporting graduate students in our department as they pursue advanced degrees in biomedical engineering.


Dr. William Hyman Scholarship Fund

Dr. William Hyman joined the faculty at Texas A&M in 1972 and throughout the course of his distinguished career taught every graduate of the biomedical engineering program, making a profound contribution to the success and growth of the department. In order to pay tribute to his lifetime achievements as both a teacher and a pioneering professional biomedical engineer, a scholarship has been created in his honor that serves to provide support for outstanding students.


Roger J. McNichols '98 Memorial Scholarship

This fund honors the memory of former student Roger McNichols. The fund will be used to provide one or more scholarships to full-time students in good standing pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in biomedical engineering from Texas A&M University. The standards used for all scholarships within the Department of Biomedical Engineering will be applied along with a bent that exemplified Mr. McNichols as a student, namely toward students doing translational work, that have a propensity for entrepreneurism and/or a passion for taking more than the required classes to truly expand the breadth of their education.
