Applications for East Providence Citizens' Scholarships are available

Posted

EAST PROVIDENCE — Citizens’ Scholarship Foundation (CSF) of East Providence announces that applications for scholarships for seniors in high school and for undergraduate students enrolled in college, technical or career schools are now available. To be eligible, you must be a resident of the City of East Providence and demonstrate merit and financial need. By filling out one application, students are eligible for more than 150 scholarships.

Last year CSF of East Providence awarded more than $146,000 in scholarships. Each student receives a scholarship package of at least $1,000. Selection is based on academic achievement, involvement in school and community activities, work experience, goals, special circumstances and financial need.

There are two different scholarship applications, and to avoid delay, students need to request either the form for graduating high school seniors or the one for students who have already graduated and are now attending post-secondary school.

SENIOR APPLICATIONS: High school seniors can obtain applications in the guidance office of East Providence High School, Bishop Feehan, Bishop Hendricken, La Salle Academy, Providence Country Day, St. Andrew’s, St. Mary’s Academy Bay View and St. Raphael Academy. Applications for seniors can also be obtained by contacting Susan Jordan, CSF Senior Awards Chair, at 401-437-0062 or susanjordan705@gmail.com. Completed senior application must be postmarked by March 14.

ENROLLED APPLICATIONS: For students already in a four-year college or two-year career program, applications are available by mail only. Contact Alice Fontes, CSF Enrolled Awards Chair, at alicefontes@yahoo.com. Enrolled applications are not available at high schools. Completed applications for enrolled students must be postmarked by April 1.
