Tadeisha Jones '16, of Providence, RI, is an enthusiastic member of the RIC community, and is profoundly thankful for the Alumni Scholarship that is helping her to be here. An honor roll student at her high school, the Academy for Career Exploration, Tadeisha was an active volunteer with the LEAD program at Central High School. She plans to keep up her volunteer efforts here and is currently exploring RIC's many opportunities.
The RICochet Fund
The Rhode Island College Alumni Association is also proud to support an emergency financial assistance fund, the RICochet Fund.
The Rhode Island College Alumni Association established the RICochet Fund in December of 1994 to assist students with financial emergencies so that they may remain in school. Grants of up to $1000 are made to cover such emergencies as educational expenses (tuition, books, educational supplies), health, housing, child care, etc. Any matriculated student may apply (graduate, undergraduate, part-time, full-time).
Applications are made on a "rolling" basis and decisions are typically made 7-10 days after the application is submitted.
Please contact the Alumni Office at 401-456-8086 for further information.
