Scholarships, grants and stipends for Rice graduate students are coordinated by the academic department offering the awards. All student loans are processed through the Office of Financial Aid.¬† Loans available to graduate students include¬†Direct Unsubsidized Loans, Grad PLUS, and Private Loans. If you are interested in obtaining federal student loans, you must fill out a FAFSA at¬†www.fafsa.ed.gov.¬†If your application is selected for verification while filling out the FAFSA, you must submit copies of your tax return and W-2 forms and submit a¬†verification worksheet.¬† For more information, email¬†our office at¬†firstname.lastname@example.org.¬†
Our priority deadline for the fall semester is May 15, but we process aid requests throughout the year.¬†¬†Proceeds from loans will be credited to any balance due to Rice, and excess funds will be issued to you as a check or direct deposit from the¬†Cashier's Office.¬†¬†¬†
