Research Funding Opportunities

Below are the research funding opportunities BRIDGE provides:

Seed Grants

The initiative provides seed funding to support research endeavors that explore inequality within the racially and ethnically diverse environment of Houston and the broader Gulf Coast Region. We seek proposals for new research endeavors, extensions of current projects, the generation of new data, and/or academic partnerships that address or inform our understanding of inequality. In particular, we encourage research that builds on Rice University’s specializations in the areas of urban, health, and education inequality.

Visiting Scholar Grants

To promote and support engagement with external scholars, practitioners, and professionals that enrich ongoing or potential projects that contribute to the initiative’s vision, we invite applications from the Rice University community for funding to support visitors to Rice during the 2020-2021 academic year.
