Aggie Research Scholars Program and Aggie Research Leadership Program
AGGIES COMMITTED TO CREATING Research and Leadership OPPORTUNITIES FOR FELLOW AGGIES

About the Programs

The Research-Intensive Community model was developed at Texas A&M to bring together faculty with active research programs, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows seeking leadership experience, and undergraduates seeking research opportunities. A graduate student or postdoctoral fellow acts as a team leader that cultivates an effective team of undergraduates. By integrating research and education, this approach promotes mutually-beneficial partnerships amongst practicing researchers and students.

Two complementary programs have been established to help Aggies create their own leadership and research opportunities, regardless of vocational goal, discipline of study, or level of experience:

  • Aggie Research Leadership Program for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to gain experience managing and mentoring diverse research teams
  • Aggie Research Scholars Program for undergraduates to gain experience collaborating in multidisciplinary teams to produce innovative research
