L.T. Jordan Fellows Program

Jordan Fellows have researched countless topics in numerous places around the globe.

* The L.T. Jordan Fellows Program program gives grants to Texas A&M Students for use in research conducted abroad.  Applicants design a specific independent international study or research project in another country that will enhance educational or career goals.  Fellows will receive grant monies up to $2000 to assist with travel expenses. 

This fellowship is designed for individual study or research and is not designed to fund a Study/Internship Abroad program.

Program Structure and Requirements


* Upon completion of a rigorous application and interview process, a maximum of ten students are selected each fall as L.T. Jordan Fellows.  The Fellows are then recognized at a banquet with their guests, academic advisors, and Texas A&M University officials.  In preparation for this independent international travel, Fellows will participate in educational programs related to international topics, which may include monthly seminars, films, exhibits, and lectures.


* Upon return from his or her trip each fellow is required to:

  • Write a 7-20 page report describing the experience. (Here are the report requirements.)
  • Deliver a 20-30 minute narrated slide presentation (PowerPoint with photographs is suitable) of his or her cultural experience and research during travel on the Texas A&M University campus.
  • Present the Fellow's cultural experiences at a local high school and during a brown bag discussion within the Fellow's department.

* These tasks assist the Jordan Institute in its continuing goal of developing international awareness among the students of Texas A&M.
