Student Opportunity Center
The Student Opportunity Center is a searchable database for experiential opportunities including internships, publications, research positions, scholarships, and symposia. In addition to offering opportunities available nationwide, the site allows you to filter opportunities only open to Rice students. Every Rice undergraduate has access to the system. To activate your account, enter your Rice email account that uses your netid and press login. You will then be prompted to create a password. Note that if your contact information is confidential, you are not already in the system and must create a new account.
Once you are in the system, identify interests to browse matching opportunities and receive relevant emails. Browse Rice-only opportunities or click on National Database to see everything available.
Are you a faculty member interested in posting an opportunity arranged or sponsored by Rice University? Open the Form for Student Opportunity Center Entry (opens in new tab/window).
