T3: Texas A&M Triads for Transformation

T3: Texas A&M Triads



T3: Texas A&M Triads for Transformation is a multidisciplinary seed-grant program that is part of a series of Presidential Excellence Initiatives 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.

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 to develop long-term research and scholarship collaborations. T3 Round 1 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.

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.

Design of the T3 program at Texas A&M University has been influenced in part by the highly successful MCubed program at the University of Michigan.
