Our goal each year is to enroll an impressive class of curious thinkers, passionate dreamers and energetic doers who believe improving the world demands more than bold thought and brave action. It takes unconventional wisdom. Each student brings a set of experiences to the table – different academic backgrounds, thoughts, values, beliefs and cultural perspectives – and that's what makes studying at Rice a unique experience. It all starts with your application.
