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.
