Texas A&M: Texas A&M Announces 2021 Presidential Impact Fellows

Twenty exceptional Texas A&M University faculty have been honored as 2021 Presidential Impact Fellows. The fifth class of Presidential Impact Fellows joins more than 75 colleagues recognized in prior years with one of the most prestigious scholarly impact awards presented to Texas A&M faculty. The award was initiated by President Michael K. Young to recognize rising stars in their respective fields, and those who embody the university commitment to advancing knowledge through transformational learning, discovery, innovation, and impact for Texas and the world.

Presidential Impact Fellows receive an annual stipend of $25,000 for three years and retain their new title for life, so long as they remain a faculty member in good standing. These award recipients were identified by their college and dean and confirmed by the academic leadership. Each is considered to be worthy of increasingly prestigious national and international professional recognitions.
