Posted 5/18/12

PROVIDENCE – The Rhode Island Foundation, a comprehensive funder of nonprofit organizations in Rhode Island and based in Providence, has more than 150 scholarship and fellowship funds available to assist state students and families with education costs.

Established by donors and organizations, the funds are managed and administered by the foundation. Last year, the foundation awarded $1.4 million in scholarships.

The scholarships are available to students in middle school through post-graduate study. Some are specific to geographic regions or support specific fields of study.

Opportunities include: The Bernard and Henrietta O’Rourke Scholarship for residents of Lincoln who are pursuing undergraduate or graduate level studies and have financial need; The Rhode Island Commission on Women/Freda Goldman Education Award for Rhode Island women pursuing education or job training beyond high school who need assistance with transportation, child care, educational materials or other support services; and The Bruce and Marjorie Sundlun Scholarship open to low-income single parents in Rhode Island. Interested applicants may review eligibility requirements and application procedures for these and all available scholarships on the Rhode Island Foundation’s scholarship online directory at
