Texas A&M Triads for Transformation is an interdisciplinary seed-grant program that is part of the President's Excellence Fund. T3 will foster new research and scholarship by moving the very best ideas from a vision to proof of concept. This program will enable interdisciplinary teams of three faculty members (Triads) to develop long-term research and scholarship collaborations. Three million dollars will be available to fund up to 100 Triads at $30,000 each in Round 1.

Part of the President's Excellence Fund, X-Grants is an interdisciplinary program designed to bring faculty together across disciplines. The program's goal is to unlock creative and imaginative ideas that will address important problems in areas that will significantly impact the most important challenges facing global society. Its over-arching themes will reflect Texas A&M's research strengths and, in many cases, will emphasize sustainable research excellence beyond initial funding. Seven million dollars will be broken out into a mix of one-year planning projects, pilot projects or large multi-year awards.
