Benefits of Sponsoring

Every Rice alumnus, with a degree from any department in the George R. Brown School of Engineering, is automatically a member of the REA. All members are welcome at any REA event, both paid and free events. As an REA Sponsor, your contribution sustains and enhances REA programs and the School of Engineering. Sponsor benefits include:

  • Receiving the Rice Engineering annual magazine.
  • Sponsors at the Gray level and above receive additional recognition, commensurate with their level, at REA events.
  • In addition, Fellows are invited to exclusive events with School of Engineering leaders.

Check out our Annual Reports for more information on how your Sponsorship contributes to the school & students!
