PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- March 15, 2001 -- URI’s 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.
