Through the generosity of our individual and corporate donors, the CCRI Foundation and the 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 more than $300,000 in financial assistance.
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. A list of available scholarships can be found here.
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.
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.
If you are an RI Promise student, RI Promise funding is applied after all other sources of federal aid (e.g. Pell grants, Supplementary Educational Opportunity Grants, etc.), scholarships, and any additional financial aid funding are applied to the student’s cost of attendance. For purposes of RI Promise, available student loans are not considered as part of the student’s financial aid award. CCRI encourages students to consider RI Promise funding before pursuing student loans.
Applying is easy! During an open application period, just log into AwardSpring using your MyCCRI email and password.
AwardSpring gives you easy access to a list of current CCRI Foundation scholarships 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.
