On December 1, 2004, competition opened for academic year 2005-2006
admissions and fellowships for the Rice University Ph.D. program in

The doctoral program at Rice focuses on the usage-based study of human
language, with primary attention to the relation of form and function, and
the cognitive, interactional, and sociocultural situation of language
users. The overriding theoretical orientation is functional linguistics,
with an eclectic application of theoretical models. Language areas
particularly well represented in faculty expertise are Austronesian
languages, Australian Aboriginal languages, Germanic and Slavic languages,
Japanese, and African languages. Other languages recently studied in field
methods include languages of North and South America and of South Asia.


Candidates for admission must submit an application form and university
transcripts before February 1. Also required are scores from the Graduate
Record Examination, and, for non-native speakers of English, scores for
the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). These examinations
should be taken in time for the scores to be made available by early
February 2005. In many countries the latest date for taking the GRE before
our deadline is Dec. 11. See the GRE and TOEFL websites to find the
earliest date to take the test in your region.

The candidate should also arrange for three letters of recommendation
from relevant faculty who know the candidate's work, preferably in
Linguistics, to be sent to the Linguistics Dept. at the address given. A
course paper or publication (written in English) in linguistics or related
subject should be supplied if possible.


Admission and financial awards are competitive. Graduate fellowship
packages are awarded to outstanding candidates for admission to the
doctoral program. Awards generally include Rice tuition and a cash stipend
for living expenses. Fellowships are normally available for 4 or 5 years
of support depending on prior background. In general, the department
admits applicants whom it can offer a financial package.


Applications are welcome from both U.S.-based and international students.
Because international qualifications sometimes require extra time to
consider, foreign students are strongly encouraged to write a letter of
intention to apply, which briefly outlines their qualifications and
indicates the linguists from whom they intend to request letters of
recommendation. Letters of intention to apply should be sent as soon as
possible in Fall 2004 for the current application cycle. Letters of intent
received by December 15 will receive fullest consideration and will help
us to identify the top candidates from outside the U.S. The letter should
be addressed to the department. Students from countries with currency
problems can request a waiver of the application fee and such requests
will be considered on the basis of need.


In 2004, four entering doctoral students were awarded full fellowships
plus tuition waivers. Currently all students within the first five years
of their progress to degree are financially supported. Current doctoral
students (16 at present) come from the U.S., Germany, Israel, Korea,
Russia, Brazil, Taiwan R.O.C., Hungary, and Mexico. Normative time to
degree is 3-4 years with masters degree, 4-5 years without. Usual time of
completion is 5 years.


Application can be made online from our website. Scroll down to near the
bottom of the page, where there is a link to the on-line application form.

All supplementary application materials and correspondence should be sent
to the correspondence addresses:
