The Rice Investment

Beginning in fall 2019, The Rice Investment will significantly expand financial aid for Rice students and families, allowing many talented students to attend college tuition free.


Volunteers for Rice help strengthen the university with their experience and expertise. Through a variety of opportunities spanning interests and spanning the globe, we hope to connect the Rice community to volunteer positions that are meaningful not only for the university, but also for the volunteer.
