Office of Financial Aid
Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid website. Our goal is to guide you through the financial aid process at Rice University. We understand that funding your education is a significant financial investment for you and your family. We hope that the information
displayed at this website will ease the process of exploring the different financial aid options available to you.
Financial aid comes in the form of scholarships, federal work study, federal and private loans and grants. The amount and type of aid you receive will depend upon your family’s income and assets. We display your most recent application status and award

Returning students with completed financial aid requirements should expect award notifications to be sent by email mid-June. There is still time to complete missing requirements if you are appying for financial aid. If you have completed one or more of the financial aid requirements and are unsure whether you need to submit additional items, then you may check for missing requirements through Esther.
