in financial aid endowments by June 2025
Thanks to the generosity of Rice trustees and other donors, we are making steady progress toward our goal, but we will need the full support of the Rice community if we are to lead the way in providing access and opportunity to all talented students.
In Dec. 2021, Rice University announced an expansion to The Rice Investment, strengthening its commitment to loan-free financial aid:
*With typical assets
This is the future
With your support, we will boldly invest in our talented young Owls who, prepared with a Rice education, will move the world forward.
Invest in innovation.
The Rice Investment empowers the most talented students to choose Rice based on their ability to excel, not their ability to pay. Endowed undergraduate scholarships are critical to meeting this need, enabling donors to establish a source of scholarship support for students in perpetuity and to solidify their personal connection to Rice. The Rice endowment pool includes nearly 500 need-based scholarship funds that benefit undergraduate students, but we need to build on this foundational support to sustain The Rice Investment.
