Opportunities

Scholarships, Fellowships, and Other Opportunities

There are a number of graduate fellowships that are awarded each year such as the National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship Program and the National Defense Scinece and Engineering Graduate Fellowship. You will find information for those programs as it is posted on the relevant websites.

Juniors planning on attending graduate school should not wait until their senior year to investigate these programs, as there are things you can be doing as a junior to make your application as a senior more likely to be successful.

Aftercollege.com lists job openings for graduates by disciplines. See http://www.aftercollege.com/career-networks/rice-university/ for the listings. You are required to register with aftercollege.com, but there is no charge for registration. Note: job postings on this site have not been vetted by the School of Engineering.

If you would like to receive announcements of job opportunities that are sent directly to the dean's office, join the engrjobs listserve. See http://engineering.rice.edu/Content.aspx?id=3043 for a list of the groups and for links to sign up.
