Internal Funding Opportunities

Rice is committed to supporting and amplifying faculty’s creative scholarship and research, and the Creative Ventures Funds are opportunities available to Rice faculty for this purpose.

The Rice Design Alliance announced the Houston Design Research Grant 2020, open to Rice students and faculty. The grant – now open nationally to students and faculty looking to work on research projects of relevance to Houston’s urban environment - awards $6,000 each to a student and faculty winner who will be invited to present their project at a public lunchtime lecture at Rice Architecture and to publish their research in Cite magazine. Deadline: March 31, 2020.

The Humanities Research Center also offers a number of funding opportunities in support of faculty and student research. Click here to see current calls and deadlines.
