Humble ISD is proud to offer a local scholarship option to pursue the Rice Education Entrepreneurship Program (REEP) Business Fellowship. REEP is a rigorous program focused on leadership development, business training, educational innovation and entrepreneurship.
Humble ISD Selection Criteria
Candidates eligible for the Humble ISD scholarship option for the REEP Business Certificate must have a minimum of three (3) years campus administrative or central office experience. The scholarship application process will consist of submission of resume, letters of recommendation, a questionnaire, and interviews.
A review panel will select the Humble ISD REEP scholarship cohort. Once the cohort is selected, cohort members will then be reviewed by Rice University REEP Program staff.
Rice University Selection Criteria
The REEP selection process is holistic and takes into account several factors as evidenced by both the application and the in person interview.
Your leadership potential is assessed by your management experience, both on the job and through extracurricular activities. Your resume, letters of recommendation from employers and/or professors, and your questionnaire responses should indicate your level of leadership skill.
Your personal goals, work experience, and reasons for choosing the Jones Graduate School of Business are critical elements of your application, and should illustrate intangible factors, such as: Why are you pursuing a REEP Business Fellowship? How have you benefited from your academic, professional and personal opportunities? What qualities will you bring to the Jones Graduate School of Business, and what will you seek from us?
