Nineteen distinguished Texas A&M University faculty have been honored as 2020 Chancellor Enhancing Development and Generating Excellence in Scholarship (EDGES) Fellows.

Launched in 2019, EDGES Fellowships were developed with resources from The Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp to honor, incentivize and boost mid-career faculty at the associate or early full professor rank who are making significant marks in their discipline. The recognition highlights Texas A&M’s intentional commitment to intensively support, retain and recognize faculty with significant and sustained accomplishments and the promise of continued high-impact scholarship.

“These awards recognize the priority of Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp to develop and support faculty members with national and international acclaim,” said Provost and Executive Vice President Carol A. Fierke. “The honorees are scholars with careers on-track to make high-impact contributions to enhance the state and nation, leading to national and international recognition.”

EDGES Fellows retain the right to use the title throughout their tenure as faculty members in good standing at Texas A&M.
