Rice University SOAR Program for Rising Seniors
Rising seniors are encouraged to apply for this expenses-paid program.
SOAR is a great opportunity to gain insight into Rice by staying overnight on campus with current undergraduates, attending classes, meeting with professors and alumni, and experiencing campus life at Rice. This program coincides with Discover Rice, our fall Open House event, so SOAR participants benefit from the activities planned for both on-campus events.
Each SOAR participant is hosted by a current Rice student, so there is no lodging expense.
All are welcome to apply, however the primary goal is to provide this opportunity to students for whom visiting Rice might not otherwise be possible or would present a financial hardship.
To apply, students must submit 1) A completed SOAR Application; 2) Unofficial high school transcripts; and 3) An unofficial copy of their SAT or ACT exam scores. The deadline for SOAR applications and supporting documents is Friday, August 18, by 11:59 p.m. CT. Space is limited, so interested students are encouraged to submit the application materials as soon as possible.
