Outside Scholarship Opportunities

CCRI receives scholarship applications throughout the year. In an effort to provide updates on scholarships to our students, a list of scholarship opportunities is listed below. Applicants are encouraged to read the applications/requirements carefully and to adhere to established deadlines.

  • "Knowledge for College" Scholarship
    • The “Knowledge for College” scholarships were designed to help students as they prepare for, attend, or pay for college. RISLA’s annual commitment is $50,000; 2k awarded to 25 students. There are 4 remaining drawings this year Jan-April (3 winners each month), then 1 bonus winner in May.  These $2,000 scholarships are available to undergraduate and graduate students.   Three entrants will be randomly selected on the first business day of the following month. Winners will be notified of the $2,000 Scholarship, which will be made co-payable to the student and the college of choice in May, 2021!
