Tuition waivers are granted in an amount equal to Rice's tuition, which is $39,800.00 for 2014-2015.
Graduate fellowships, unlike teaching fellowships awarded by many universities, entail only a modest teaching or research assignment (a maximum of ten hours per week during the semester); consequently, graduate fellows can engage in full time study. At present these fellowships provide incoming students at least $22,000 per nine month academic year.
Numerous opportunities for summer funding (often supported by faculty grants) are also available.
In addition, a number of graduate students have been recipients of external fellowships. All financial aid decisions are made shortly after the January 5 application deadline.
