The world won't stand still, and neither should we. The time for building a better foundation for engineering education and research is now. Join us as we define chemical engineering for the next century - and beyond.

Student Support

Providing scholarship support for deserving students is a tradition nearly as old as higher education itself. One of our society's core values is the belief that aspiring college students who have demonstrated exceptional merit and Residentship should receive the recognition that comes with a scholarship.

Undergraduate Scholarships ~ from $30,000 (endowed)
Our undergraduate program is one of the largest in the nation and supplies eager, highly-skilled engineers to the work force. We must continue to attract the best students to chemical engineering. Need-based and merit-based scholarships give these students an opportunity to excel.

President's Endowed Scholarships ~ from $100,000 (endowed) Funding a named President's Scholarship for a chemical engineering student will ensure that the best students choose to attend Texas A&M. Competition for these students is fierce, and Texas A&M must be in the position to ensure that no qualified student is denied an education for lack of funds.

Graduate Fellowship ~ from $150,000 (endowed) Competition for exceptional chemical engineering graduate students is extremely tight. Graduate students are a key aspect of the continued prestige of this academic program: bringing the best graduate students to our department helps us attract outstanding faculty with whom they will work. It's important to note that those top-notch faculty also teach our undergraduates. Chemical engineering graduate students are tomorrow's industrial and academic researchers as well as teachers. Fellowship funding ensures the best will be trained at Texas A&M.

Faculty Support

To retain their finest scholars and teachers throughout the long term, universities must think creatively while recognizing and continuing to expand the research of accomplished faculty. Endowments and awards allow these faculty members to pursue research that positively impacts society. The challenge for the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering lies in the ongoing search for new ways to fund these programs.

Unrestricted Gifts

Unrestricted gifts to the department go directly to solving the department's most pressing needs, including strengthening ongoing student or faculty programs. There are two kinds of unrestricted support: annual gifts, which fund current operations, and endowments, which are invested to produce a stream of unrestricted income throughout time.

Such discretionary funds can be given outright or by establishing an endowment from which income supports the department's leadership in addressing needs. A named endowment fund begins at $25,000. Texas A&M encourages unrestricted endowments in chemical engineering to provide maximum flexibility in critical needs and to provide support for new initiatives.
