Transfer Scholarships

No separate application is required for our merit-based scholarships, but all students who would like to be considered for any merit award must apply by the June 1 deadline and submit all supporting documents by June 15.  Merit awards are not available to students who have already earned a bachelor's degree.

The Transfer Merit Award

Preference for our highest level awards will be given to students with:

  • A minimum of 24 transferable college credits (based on a semester system) in a diversified program of study.

  • An overall cumulative grade point average of 3.3.

Satisfaction of the minimum criteria does not guarantee a scholarship; the overall applicant pool determines the degree of competition for these awards. Depending upon available funding, other scholarships may be awarded to students with a strong record of academic achievement who fall slightly below these criteria.

Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Scholarship

Awarded to Phi Theta Kappa scholars holding an associate degree who have achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.5.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Current membership in Phi Theta Kappa (documentation must be submitted along with your academic credentials)

  • URI must be your first four-year institution

  • Confirmation of an earned Associate in Arts (AA), Associate in Science (AS) or an Associate of Fine Arts (AFA).
