Dr. Kellie Butler, Director of the Office of Fellowships and Undergraduate Research, gave a presentation today in the Center for Civic Engagement Fellows meeting. She gave us an overview of available scholarships and programs for both undergraduate and graduate students to go abroad and study, travel, or learn more about things they’re interested in. She talked about trying to figure out what it is that you really want to do, rather than listening to someone else tell you what they think you ought to do. An extensive list of the opportunities available to Rice students is available at the Rice Fellowships Website. An joinable Owl-Space page called OFUR has also been created as an additional resource. Dr. Butler is available to meet with students to talk about different scholarships, or even to discuss more general questions like “what do I want to do after I graduate?” She gave us the helpful advice that meeting with her during the summer is easier than during the school year, and it’s a good idea to fill out applications during the summer before everything gets too hectic.
