Each spring, the RGF awards partial tuition scholarships to deserving students in the Rice School of Engineering, ranging in value from $500 to $8,000. In special cases, if a full $8,000 scholarship is awarded, it can be accompanied with a tuition waiver (one-semester tuition fee) for research master's students (with the approval of the RGF university liaison). In addition to the partial tuition scholarships, one $8,000 research scholarship is awarded. More information here.
