Undergraduate Research: Texas Sea Grant Scholars Program


Texas Sea Grant Scholars Program - A Partnership with LAUNCH Texas A&M University

Texas A&M University undergraduate students enrolled in any discipline at the main campus or at Galveston who apply to participate in LAUNCH: Undergraduate Research Scholars, and submit a proposal to conduct research related to the marine environment, may also be eligible to be a Texas Sea Grant Scholar. We invite proposals from all disciplines including natural, physical, social, behavioral and economic sciences and engineering.

Each academic year, Texas Sea Grant will designate as many as five Texas Sea Grant Scholars, from among the LAUNCH: Undergraduate Research Scholars selected. Texas Sea Grant Scholars will be eligible to receive up to an additional $1,000 supplement to their research budget.

Texas Sea Grant Scholars engage in a two-semester (fall/spring) research project, conducted under the supervision of a Texas A&M faculty mentor, that culminates in a public presentation and written thesis.

The goal of the program is to encourage motivated undergraduates to actively participate in research, and to give them the opportunity to communicate their findings as principal authors to the university's scholarly community.

Applicants must complete the standard application for LAUNCH: Undergraduate Research Scholars in the Office of Undergraduate Research Scholars. Eligible students are invited to apply each year between June and September. All applications will be reviewed by LAUNCH staff.
