Mission

The Barbara Jordan scholarship program, named for the first black woman elected to the Texas Legislature and the United States Congress, provides support for a group of Rice freshmen who display the qualities of the late congresswoman.  The four-year half-tuition scholarships recognize deserving Rice students who distinguish themselves with activities and qualities she exhibited-including building bridges within and across racial, cultural and ethnic divides-and to maintain and enhance a campus learning environment that embraces civility and respect for the many facial and ethnic traditions that make up our society.
