Undergraduate Students
Summer Research Fellowships

Program Description:
The Humanities Research Center awards Summer Research Fellowships to undergraduates with strong backgrounds in the humanities.  The fellowships require up to 200 hours of work on a research project led by a Rice faculty member engaged in humanistic research.  Selected fellows in 2022 received stipends of up to $3,000.

Fellowships are awarded to undergraduate students who have demonstrated strong potential in the humanities, though they do not need to be a humanities major.  Fellows must be enrolled at Rice in the Fall 2023 semester.
