What fuels your passion for Rice? For me, that spark comes from the current Owl students I meet, who seem to be more impressive each year. I’m inspired by Tessa, Akin, Maryam and Alex. These young Owls are blazing new trails in research labs, residential colleges, athletics courts and throughout Houston.

As we turn the page from fall to winter, I’m reminded of the bold step our university has taken in announcing The Rice Investment. Now one of the nation’s most generous financial aid programs, The Rice Investment honors our university’s legacy of investing in students of all backgrounds by providing lower- and middle-income students with varying levels of scholarships and grant aid to defray the cost of attendance.
I write this fall newsletter with great pride in our university’s recent announcement of The Rice Investment, a new initiative that significantly expands financial support for low- and middle-class students. As alumni, we have all benefitted from Rice’s legacy of access and affordability, and alumni have been strong proponents of strengthening this important part of the Rice culture.
