Multicultural Community Relations






For college-bound students looking for financial help, the search just got easier. Rice University's Multicultural Community Relations in the Office of Public Affairs has compiled a list of scholarships that are available to local students. Rice faculty, staff, students and community members contributed by recommending programs that help finance education. Multicultural Community Relations would like your help in identifying additional scholarships so that this page can continue to improve and expand. If your organization offers scholarships, or if you are familiar with a scholarship program that would benefit students in our community, please contact David Medina at dmedina@rice.edu.
