Kinder Institute Affiliated Researchers Program
The Kinder Institute Affiliated Researchers Program includes two components -- Kinder Fellows and Kinder Scholars. The researchers who have these affiliations play a vital role in supporting the Kinder Institute's work as a "think-and-do thank" and help to advance understanding of the challenges -- and opportunities -- facing metro areas.
Kinder Fellows include several categories of researchers:
- Program Directors who are actively participating in research projects at the Kinder Institute;
- Other Rice professors who maintain a long-term affiliation with the Kinder Institute and available to work on research projects, but are not paid on an ongoing basis;
- Senior researchers or subject-matter experts from other universities or institutions who maintain a long-term affiliation with the Kinder Institute and whose research interest is consistent with the Kinder Institute's overall mission;
- Any faculty member who is Principal Investigator on a project funded through RFP called by the Kinder Institute.
- Selection is by invitation only.

Kinder Scholars are researchers who have their own funding sources but seek "soft" support from the Kinder Institute. Scholars may be professors and researchers, post-doctoral fellows, or graduate students who conduct high quality research on Houston here in town, or projects that are directly connected to the research programs of the Institute. This is a short-term appointment no more than a year. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Only a limited number of Kinder Scholars will be selected each year.
