Giving to the Department of Entomology
The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences is a founding pillar of Texas A&M University, the premiere land-grant institution in Texas. Since its establishment, the College has evolved to advance agriculture in the state, address new challenges across disciplines and create solutions for the world’s most complex issues through teaching, research, Extension and service. The college is home to more than 300 faculty experts and over 7,600 students across 15 departments. We represent a community of scholars working to restore connections among people, agriculture, food, science and the economy.
Ways to Give
There are numerous ways to give through the Texas A&M Foundation that allow you to direct your gift for a specific purpose at Texas A&M University. You can support students, faculty, college programs or student activities with an endowed gift that will provide permanent support, or you can make a non-endowed “pass-through” gift to be used more immediately for a designated purpose.
Department Funding Priorities
Advancing Insect Research through State-of-the-Art Infrastructure
To ensure the success and advancement of the Department of Entomology at Texas A&M University, construction of a new and improved insectary is crucial. The space in the current insectary is very limited and the facility is outdated and will likely not support future advancement of the department without updating or constructing a new facility with improvements and more space for insects to be housed.
Pollinate the Next Generation of Honey Bee Scientists
With your support, we can ensure that we can provide scholarships and assistantships for students to further their education in Honey Bee Research. There is currently a shortage of available funds for graduate students pursuing this program making increased funding for these students a top priority.
