Because the Professional Master’s Degree is a non-thesis (non-research) degree, Rice University does not offer tuition waivers, stipends, fellowships or assistantships for this program (similar to MBA programs). Corporate scholarships are sometimes available and all accepted students are eligible to apply.
However, other sources of financial assistance exist, mainly in the form of loans. Visit the Rice Office of Student Financial Services for more information on loans, work-study programs and outside sources of aid. As these degrees are considered STEM degrees, many grants and scholarships are available, especially for minorities and women.
Loan options include federal subsidized and unsubsidized Stafford Loans, Perkins Loans and private loans. International students are eligible for loans from commercial lending institutions if they have a co-signer who is a US citizen. If you have questions about which types of loans may be best for you, please contact Student Financial Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
