Sponsor A Scholarship


Show you care for East Providence students! Scholarship Foundation of East Providence is seeking businesses to sponsor scholarships as part of their Business Fund Drive. All proceeds will provide scholarships for East Providence students.

“This is a great way to show the community that you support higher education for our local students,” notes Fund Drive Chair Louise Paiva.

Sponsorship levels range from $100 or $150 for a named book award to $200 to $2000 for a named scholarship. Students receive a scholarship package, consisting of one or more scholarships and book awards, totaling at least $1,500. Book awards help to raise the total amount awarded. Students with the greatest need and merit receive the larger scholarship packages, totaling up to $2,000. Donations in any amount are welcome.

Current participants in this year’s Business Fund Drive include scholarship sponsors Feeney Pinkerton LLC, Guardian Pest Control and the James P. McStay Memorial Scholarship sponsored by Perry-McStay Funeral Home. Book award sponsors to date include Massa & Leroux LLC and S & W TV & Appliances.

Businesses and individuals can send their check, made payable to Scholarship Foundation of East Providence, to P.O. Box 154438, East Providence, RI02915. For more information, contact 401-433-3463 or sfofeastprovidence@yahoo.com
