Brown EnMed Scholarship
Brown EnMed Scholarship
Brown Houston Methodist Hospital, Texas A&M College of Medicine, and Texas A&M College of Engineering have joined forces to create the EnMed Scholarship. In four years, graduates of EnMed will be awarded both an MD and a Master of Engineering. With the aim of revolutionizing healthcare, this pioneering curriculum combines medical school instruction with hands-on engineering innovation learning to produce a new breed of doctor known as a “physicianeer.”
About the Craig and Galen Brown Foundation’s scholarships
One of Texas A&M University’s most esteemed awards for undergraduate students is a scholarship from the Craig and Galen Brown Foundation.
Among Texas A&M’s top students are Brown Scholars. Since 1992, all 306 Brown Scholars have earned National Merit rank, and over 90 Brown Scholars have won Texas A&M’s Outstanding Senior Engineering Award in the past 25 years.
As the Outstanding Senior of the A&M graduating class, Corps Commander, Rhodes Scholar Finalist, Fulbright Scholar, Goldwater Scholar, MSC President, and Yell Leader, Brown Scholars have held the highest positions at A&M or have won the highest honors and accolades.
The Texas A&M University System’s EnMed graduate program, a singular graduate program in which students simultaneously receive master’s degrees in engineering and medical degrees, is now receiving support from the Brown Foundation to attract the brightest minds. In order to conditionally admit 15 outstanding high school students to EnMed through the brand-new E2EnMed Early Assurance program, the foundation is awarding scholarships.
The Brown Foundation has been given permission by Texas A&M University to submit up to 15 Brown Foundation applicants for conditional admission to the EnMed program each year via the E2EnMed Early Assurance program pathway. Students who receive a Brown Foundation scholarship for undergraduate studies and who graduate with a Bachelor of Science from a College of Engineering degree program (which includes engineering, computer science, and engineering technology) are also eligible for an additional graduate scholarship to EnMed.

Between 15 and 23 Brown Foundation E2EnMed Early Assurance Program candidates are interviewed by the EnMed Program director for the Brown Foundation. The admissions committee at the Texas A&M College of Medicine grants conditional admission to the EnMed Program.
Scholarship for Medical Research Interns at Brown University
The Brown Foundation will choose ten Brown Scholars enrolled in undergraduate STEM programs to take part in a 10-week summer internship program at the renowned Houston Methodist Research Institute (“HMRI”), where they will work in pairs with faculty members to conduct research in their chosen fields. The Brown Foundation will award selected Brown Scholars with an HMRI internship fellowship.
Bray International, Inc. offers a worldwide summer internship scholarship.
