Each year the ACE Mentoring Program of Rhode Island offers scholarships to its college-bound seniors. In 2015, ACE RI awarded a total of $10,000 in scholarships to five students at its annual networking fundraiser event. The amount of scholarships awarded varies each year depending on the number of applications and the amount of money we are able to raise. This year we will award a number of $2,000 scholarships to high school seniors.
Students who wish to apply must be ACE participants in one of the three ACE RI sections and meet the minimum attendance requirement (75% of the meetings). The scholarship recipients will be announced at this year's networking fundraiser event.
Application requirements include:
- One recommendation from an ACE mentor
- At least one additional recommendation (from a teacher, coach, etc.)
- High school transcript
- Short essay-type responses about the student’s educational/career interests
This year's application deadline has been extended to April 1st, 2018 for Rhode Island applicants.
