Last Mile 2021-22 Scholarship Application

Summary of program: The CCRI Last Mile Scholarship provides students a full-time attendance edge to support completing your degree sooner. This scholarship is intended to fast-track your path to graduation. The scholarship will support full-time attendance in the 2021-22 academic year for students who have exclusively attended part-time or have had a mix of part-time and full-time attendance since entering CCRI.

The scholarship will provide students with $1,000 per semester to help pay for transportation, books, and other costs that may be essential on your path to graduation. Scholarship funds are limited and will be awarded on a rolling, first-come, first-awarded basis for eligible students.
