The Shepherd School of Music awards merit-based scholarships to music majors to recognize exceptional musical accomplishment and potential. Students who wish to be considered for a merit award are required to apply for need-based assistance and complete the Shepherd School Financial Assistance Application. Rice will award need-based funds through the Office of Financial Aid if eligible.
Rice considers international applicants on a need-aware basis, and offers need-based financial aid to a limited number of international first year applicants. This means when the Admission Committee evaluates international applications, the amount of financial aid a family might need is taken into consideration. Students who wish to be considered for financial aid must indicate their intention to apply for financial aid on the admission application. International students admitted without a request for financial aid cannot apply for financial aid in subsequent years.
