The Center for Civic Leadership recruits and offers holistic advising for a range of scholarship and fellowship opportunities for graduate study, leadership programs, and international travel and research.

We are here to support you as you identify potential funded opportunities that match your experience, values, and goals. We primarily advise for Rice nominated national fellowships and Rice internal awards, but are happy to help you find resources and provide guidance on other opportunities for which you are interested in applying.

You do not need to know what fellowships you plan to apply for in order to access our resources and advising. We aim to assist you in developing the reflective skills to identify your motivations, synthesize your experiences, and find opportunities that open doors to personal and professional development. Whether you are awarded the fellowships or scholarships for which you apply, we assure you that the process of reflection you engage with in order to apply is extremely valuable and is a practice that you will be able to apply in your future.

The fellowships are broken down into the following categories:

  • Graduate Study
  • Post Graduate Travel
  • Post Graduate Research
  • Work Abroad
  • Fellowship Opportunities Pursued Prior to Senior Year

If you are interested in learning more about next steps to start your fellowships journey, please visit our Fellowships Canvas Page.
