Pathways to the Doctorate Fellowship Program
Pathways to the Doctorate is a program dedicated to increase the number, quality, and diversity of Doctoral graduates across all disciplines within the Texas A&M University System. The goal of the A&M-Commerce Pathways to the Doctorate Fellowship Program is to attract high achieving students within the Texas A&M University System to pursue their doctorate at A&M-Commerce.
In an effort to attract quality doctoral students from other System institutions, the A&M-Commerce Graduate School offers Doctoral Pathways Fellowships. Recipients of these fellowships will receive:
- $3,000 per year for two years
- One trip to present research results at a professional meeting
Recipients of this award are also eligible to compete for a $1,000 housing scholarship. Eligible participants are students who have earned either a bachelor's or a master's degree from one of the A&M System institutions (excluding A&M-Commerce) and plan to pursue a doctoral degree at A&M-Commerce.
To be considered for these awards, a student must be nominated by a doctoral granting academic department from A&M-Commerce.
Recipients of Pathways Fellowships must comply with the following requirements:
- Enroll in at least 9 graduate credit hours throughout the course of the fellowship
- Maintain academic good-standing status throughout the course of the fellowship
- Make satisfactory progress toward graduation
