|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 five $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, a new transfer scholarship has been
created to help students continue their education after earning an
associate’s degree at a member school. This one-time award is designed for a
student to continue his/her educational aspiration towards a bachelor’s
degree at a RIAAO member institution.
