What is the deadline to apply for a Pilot Project?
There are two pilot deadlines each year, at the start of the fall and spring semesters. Announcements will be sent to everyone on the TICER list-serve and various distributions throughout Texas A&M University.

Communities and their members have the opportunity to help direct areas of research that are of interest to participating communities. Additionally, TICER members are available to provide talks or community forums on research, outcomes, and impacts on health.
