Each spring, the RGF awards partial tuition scholarships to deserving students in the Rice School of Engineering, ranging in value from $500 to $8,000. In special cases if full $8,000 scholarship is awarded, it can be accompanied with a tuition waiver (one semester tuition fee) for research masters students (with approval of the RGECF university liaison).
