General Scholarships

Student

 

Rhode Island College offers a variety of general scholarships to any enrolled student who demonstrates financial need, regardless of their major. 

Scholarships allowed me some financial stability. It gave me less stress, so I was able to focus more on school. Without the scholarship, I’d probably be taking out more loans – more debt – or working more to make ends meet. Having that extra money really helped me a lot.”
