Rice University has unveiled a new initiative to make higher education more affordable by dramatically expanding financial aid provided to students from low-income families to those with incomes up to $200,000.
Starting in fall 2019, Rice undergraduates will be eligible for The Rice Investment, one of the nation’s most generous financial aid initiatives that increases access to an affordable, quality education for low- and middle-income students. The Rice Investment will provide extraordinary opportunity for extraordinary students to seek a top-tier college education at a time when many families are struggling to make ends meet. Going forward, low- and middle-income families with typical assets will receive scholarships and grants as outlined below:
|Family Income Range*||The Rice Investment Grant to Include|
|$65,000 and below||Full Tuition, Fees, Room and Board|
|$65,001 - $130,000||Full Tuition|
|$130,001 - $200,000||Half Tuition|
*Some families may qualify for additional need-based aid beyond The Rice Investment.
The Rice Investment will also reduce the burden of student debt. Beginning in fall 2019, degree-seeking undergraduate students from families with incomes up to $200,000 who qualify for The Rice Investment will no longer be required to take out loans as part of their need-based financial aid packages.
Rice has a legacy of helping students afford college, dating back to our founding. While we believe that students and their families have a role in helping to pay for college, we never want their financial circumstances to be the reason they can't realize their dreams at Rice.
