PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- March 15, 2001 -- URIs Alan Shawn Feinstein College of Continuing Education announces that summertime scholarships are available for the first time.
The scholarships, funded by a generous gift to the college by the Feinstein Foundation, will cover the tuition for one to four courses taken at the College during the summer sessions. Any adult student, whether new or returning, is eligible to apply. The application deadline is April 20.
A stipulation of the scholarship is that the student is required to perform 30 hours of community service. The college can provide assistance in locating community service opportunities for students who do not have specific organizations in mind.
So far, the college has awarded Feinstein scholarships totaling nearly $300,000 this academic year. The scholarships have helped about 200 Rhode Island men and women to further their education.
Scholarship applications are available by calling Joanne DiBello at 277-5162 or by accessing www.uri.edu/prov/scholarships_app.html.
