MEET THE TEAM

Student Affiliates

Our Student Affiliates want to hear from you.

Affiliates serve as representatives for the Doerr Institute at various outreach events on Rice's campus. Each of these students has a unique leadership journey and are willing to share with you their experiences with the Doerr Institute. Please feel free to reach out to any Affiliate for a better understanding of the impact we are having on students at Rice.

To become a Student Affiliate, you must be an undergraduate student at Rice who has participated in Doerr programming. Applications open each spring semester, typically in April. Please check back for updates regularly to stay up to date on the application process.
