Students at Texas A&M get a world-class education at a reasonable cost — and graduate with far less college-related debt than their peers at other universities. We award scholarships annually to undergraduate students in the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering and support graduate students through assistantships and fellowships, travel and research grants. This funding is made possible by donors and supporters of the department including former students, family and friends, former faculty and industry sponsors.
Undergraduate Funding Opportunities
Students in our department are fortunate to receive scholarships and awards made possible through the generosity of numerous Former Student and faculty. Most recently, Mrs. Vivian P. Follett established a scholarship in the memory of her husband, George H. Follett, Agricultural Engineering graduate, class of ’31. This scholarship will be awarded annually with about one-half of those going to incoming freshmen.
Applications are requested and accepted in the Spring semester, to be awarded for the following Fall/Spring.
