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 Program Enhancement Fund

This fund is dedicated to the development of the department and especially to promote new initiatives that enhance the main academic and research programs. Distributions from this fund provide for critical departmental activities not supported by state funding allocations. Project funding includes faculty recruiting, corporate relations, special events, and innovative educational program development. Gifts to this fund are not endowed. However, larger gifts intended to support sustainment of departmental programs are encouraged through the Biomedical Engineering Endowed Excellence Fund.

Endowed Scholarships

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.

Ayse Yalcinkaya '02 Memorial Scholarship

This fund honors the memory of former student Ayse Yalcinkaya ‘02. 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 additional selection preferences that highlight female biomedical engineering students that are classified as either juniors or seniors, and are members of the Society of Women Engineers with a 3.0 GPA or higher.
