Part of the President's Excellence Fund
T3: Texas A&M Triads for Transformation is a multidisciplinary seed-grant program that is part of the President's Excellence Fund designed to further Texas A&M University's commitments to the three pillars of advancing transformational learning; enhancing discovery and innovation and expanding impact on our community, state, nation, and world.
New Research and Scholarship
T3 will foster new research and scholarship by moving excellent ideas from a vision to proof of concept. This program will enable interdisciplinary teams to develop long-term research and scholarship collaborations. T3 will fund 100 uniquely identified projects at a total of $30,000 each. The projects will be carried out by multidisciplinary teams of three faculty members. Additional funds will be available to support undergraduate and graduate student researchers.
How it Works
Utilizing a web-based interface, project ideas are posted for all faculty to review. Tenured or tenure-track faculty from at least two different colleges/schools will be invited to form three-person interdisciplinary research groups, or Triads, to accomplish the proposed project in 12-24 months.
