CCRI Foundation Scholarships

Did you know that each year there are more than 90 scholarships available to help you pursue your education at CCRI?

The CCRI Foundation and Alumni Association offers scholarships for both full- and part-time students. Scholarships can help cover tuition, books, fees and other education-related expenses. We also offer a number of transfer scholarships to support you on your road to a four-year institution. Last year, the CCRI Foundation and Alumni Association provided $108,000 in financial assistance.

You are working hard for your education. A scholarship can make your path to success a little easier.

Scholarships are available for students across CCRI programs and disciplines and can be based on financial need, educational costs, academic program and availability of CCRI Foundation funds.

It is easy to apply for scholarships with our AwardSpring scholarship platform. AwardSpring gives you easy access to a full list of CCRI Foundation scholarships, along with award amounts and application deadlines. AwardSpring easily guides you through the application process and matches you to scholarships that you qualify for. You can check the status of your application at any time in AwardSpring.

Before you apply

  1. You must be enrolled at the Community College of Rhode Island to apply for scholarships. Your MyCCRI email address and password are your login information needed to log into AwardSpring.

  2. If you are applying for scholarships that are based on financial need, you must have filed for Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you need assistance with FAFSA, contact the CCRI Financial Aid Office or Rhode Island Student Loan Authority.

AwardSpring offers a user-friendly application process for students. Please review the application materials and instructions before you begin. (Student Guide)
