A research project may be combined simultaneously with the advanced study of a language (400 level or above); or an introductory level of languages not offered at Rice. Funding is available up to $20,000 per award (Note: funding is considered taxable income). The Wagoner only supports university enrollment when it is required to get a visa in the host country.
