Gateway Study of Leadership (GSL)

The Gateway Study of Leadership is a student-led fellowship housed in the School of Social Sciences. The goal of the fellowship is to conduct an interview-based research project that looks for leadership themes and lessons as offered by faculty members of Rice University. The fellows also host leadership breakfasts, lectures and other events with prominent leaders from Rice University and beyond.

Benefits of Participating 

  • Learn practical methods for qualitative social science research. Fellows learn the necessary steps toward successfully preparing, conducting, transcribing, and analyzing interviews. These skills are essential for any future field research and are especially important for competitive, prestigious scholarships such as the Fulbright Scholarship.
  • Access to leaders. Fellows meet in private gatherings with guests of the program to discuss leadership topics and gain insights into the professional world.
  • A collection of excerpts from the faculty interviews will be published in the Turning Points series.
