Energy and Sustainability (E&S) AGEP Mini-Grant Application (Supported by National Science Foundation under award number 1308200)


E&S AGEP Mini-Grant:  Foster TAMUS faculty research collaborations to support Alliance wide collaboration with master’s and doctoral student researchers.  The mini-grant awards are to support research conducted by an AGEP student in coordination with faculty members in his/her field.  The Mini-Grants provide seed funding to support the development of new collaborative research and/or teaching efforts submitted by an AGEP student as the main author of the proposal.


AGEP students co-mentored by faculty from at least at least one other Alliance institutions (for example, if an AGEP student is from Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi, that student can be mentored by faculty from Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi and Prairie View A&M University). These projects will be selected based on an assessment of the likelihood the projects will be self-sustaining in terms of continued funding and have the potential to expand collaborations across the Alliance. AGEP students must be U. S. Citizens and must have underrepresented minority status. http://tamus-agep.tamu.edu/Students/Eligibility

I am very grateful to AGEP for awarding me with this grant. I would like to thank the AGEP administration for their continuous selfless contributions to provide students with the necessary support to complete our desired degrees. The assistance provided from both the mini-grant and staff, have helped pave the way for not only my success, but the success of all AGEP students. For this, I will always be truly grateful.”‚Äč
