Rice students have a strong support system on campus to help them find research opportunities. Regardless of major or classification, research opportunities abound. Students will encounter research opportunities in their informal day-to-day interaction with faculty and through structured initiatives such as the Century Scholars Program for freshmen or the Rice University Scholars Program for upperclassmen.
Rice's Office of Research is designed to guide students through the decision to begin a research program or project. The office maintains a listing of both faculty-sponsored and off-campus research opportunities and will assist students with accessing them.
