Still time to apply for our scholarships
By Chris Barnett / April 27, 2015 /   Loading Disqus...

While the deadline for many of our scholarships has passed, there are still dozens available to students headed off to college or trade school. To help students defray educational expenses such as tuition, fees and books, generous individual and organizational donors established scholarship funds with us.

“Every one of these scholarships makes dreams come true for our donors and our recipients,” says our Neil Steinberg. “The impact of their generosity will ripple through Rhode Island for generations.”

In addition to general scholarship assistance, we offer a number of awards targeting students based on their major, where they live, their parents’ employers or their gender among other characteristics.

There are the James J. Burns and C.A. Haynes Textile Scholarship and the MJSA Education Foundation Jewelry Scholarship. The Beacon Brighter Tomorrows Scholarship targets students with parent who sustained a work-related injury at a company that had workers’ compensation insurance with the Beacon Mutual Insurance Company

The Jennie M. Kiernan Scholarship targets residents of communities in the Blackstone Valley. The Rhode Island Commission on Women/Freda Goldman Education Award is for women pursuing higher education or job training who need assistance with transportation, child care, educational materials or other support services.

Here is a complete list of scholarships, application deadlines and eligibility requirements.
