In recognition of our program’s 50th anniversary, we are focusing our development efforts on giving students the best chance for success in their degrees. It is immensely important that our students be financially able to complete their education and that our department celebrate the achievements of our top students.

Ways to Give

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University sincerely appreciates your interest in our funding initiatives and philanthropic causes for support.

We welcome this opportunity to partner with you and greatly appreciate your support!

50 for 50 Scholarship Campaign

Due to the demand for engineers, our student population has increased rapidly. Our ability to reward student achievements and support those struggling to afford tuition continues to be a top need and priority. Scholarships provide opportunities for our undergraduate students to continue their education.

In recognition of our 50th anniversary, we have established a goal to create 50 new scholarships. Contributions toward the “50 for 50” campaign will have an impact on the department and students for decades to come.
