Are you considering going abroad again? There are many opportunities for Rice students both through Rice offices and departments, and through external organizaitons.

The Center for Civic Leadership
Besides offering valuable undergraduate research experiences and student mentoring relationships with Rice faculty, and/or local, national, and international scholars and professionals, the Center for Civic Leadership serves as a campus-wide clearinghouse for prestigious awards and research opportunities available both on and off campus. The office functions as a consolidated reference for students seeking domestic and/or international study and research experiences. International opportunities include prestigious fellowships such as the Marshall, Mitchell, Rhodes, Fulbright, Luce, and Watson, just to name a few. 

Departmental International Opportunities
Individual departments sponsor international programs such as Beyond Traditional Borders, Engineers Without Borders, NANO Japan, or opportunities at The James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy.

The Center for Career Development
The Center for Career Development is also a valuable resource for future international career opportunities, as well as advice for talking about your international experience on resumes or during interviews.
