NEWPORT – Salve Regina University will offer free courses to 25 Rhode Island residents who enroll as first-time applicants in an undergraduate continuing education program at the school’s new Center for Adult Education in Warwick.
The Kick-Start RI Awards, which give recipients their first course free, will be awarded randomly from the applicant pool of students who meet admissions criteria and who successfully answer the application essay – “Why is now the right time to kick-start your education?”
“With so much media attention directed at our state’s unemployment rate and workforce- skills gap, now is the perfect time for Salve Regina to step up and invest in those who want to better position themselves in their careers by investing in their education,” said Traci Warrington, dean of professional studies, in a statement.
All application materials must be received by Aug. 1. •
