The Rhode Island Association of Admission Officers has a long tradition of supporting the academic aspirations of high school students in Rhode Island. One of the ways we achieve this is by offering at least seven $500 scholarships. To be eligible students must have attended and graduated from a Rhode Island High School or received a Rhode Island GED and must be accepted with plans to enroll as a degree or certificate candidate first-year undergraduate student at any RIAAO institution.

RIAAO also realizes that a student’s journey in higher education varies. Therefore, transfer and New England first-year scholarships have been created to help students continue their education at a RIAAO member school.
