Thanks to the generosity of many Rhode Islanders, the Foundation manages more than 150 scholarship and fellowship funds. Assistance is offered to students at a variety of levels (from middle school to post-graduate), to students in communities throughout the state, and in many different fields of study.
|Ryan Curtis, a University of Rhode Island political science and psychology major from Coventry, received an award from the Michael P. Metcalf Memorial Fund to enable him to spend six weeks in Peru volunteering at an orphanage for children with disabilities and doing jungle conservation work. He was one of four students to earn a 2016 Metcalf Fellowship.
The Foundation has developed a scholarship questionnaire to help you determine your eligibility for scholarships/ fellowships administered by the Foundation. Please note that many additional scholarships are administered by designated schools and organizations.
Scholarships, both those administered by the Foundation and those administered by designated schools/organizations, are included in Scholarship/ Fellowship Opportunities.
