Each spring, the RGF awards partial tuition scholarships to deserving students in the Rice School of Engineering, ranging in value from $500 to $7,500. Priority is given to professional masters or terminal research masters engineering students interested in careers in the E&C industry or in industries that employ E&C companies. Seniors will be considered if their interest in the industry is high and/or if the applicant pool at the masters level is low.
The E&C industry historically has hired graduates of chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering programs at Rice University. The RGF’s scholarships are open to students of all disciplines in the School of Engineering at Rice University.
Scholarship applications for the 2013-2014 academic year will be accepted in early 2013. Read below for general application details to be prepared for the next round of applications and awards. Check back soon for important dates and deadlines.
