  Available Scholarships

The following 7 colleges and universities have pledged significant scholarship and other educational related programs for the 76 children impacted by the Station fire. Eligible children who can apply for these scholarships are the 76 children who lost a parent or in some cases, both parents, as a result of the fire.

  • JOHNSON & WALES UNIVERSITY: All 76 children are each eligible for up to $15,000 scholarship per academic year toward the cost of tuition and fees for full-time, undergraduate day school enrollment at Johnson & Wales University. The scholarship may be used at any of the JWU campuses and is renewable for up to 4 years. Eligible students must remain enrolled in a full-time, undergraduate day school program at JWU and continue to make satisfactory academic progress. Eligible students must meet all admissions requirements at the time they apply for admission to JWU. The Board of the Station Education Fund must confirm the eligibility of candidates. To account for the youngest child who is presently 4 years old, the scholarships will extend until the year 2024. For further information, please contact the National Student Organizations Office at JWU at 401.598.2345 or 1-800-DIAL-JWU (www.jwu.edu).


  • NEW ENGLAND TECH: 5 children per year are each eligible for a maximum scholarship of $13,015 toward the cost of tuition and fees in excess of available financial aid. Students must meet all academic and admission requirements. The 5 scholarships will be available to all the affected children until January 5, 2009. Beyond that, scholarships will then be available in the future to individuals who are 21 years of age and younger. Since the youngest child is presently 4 years old this would extend the scholarships to the year 2024.

  • PROVIDENCE COLLEGE: Providence College is establishing a new scholarship available to all 76 children: It is the Rebecca Shaw Higher Education Grant. Ms. Shaw lost her life in the fire and was a PC student and daughter of one of the college's long-time faculty members. The scholarship will provide 100 percent of demonstrated need for tuition expenses and will be renewable for 4 years. In addition to making this available to the SEF, this opportunity is also being offered to the 76 children through the Station Family Fund and Rhode Island Foundation.


  • BROWN UNIVERSITY: Brown University is participating in our effort by allowing all 76 children to participate in Brown's summer college preparation education program, which is aimed at inspiring interest in college and also enhancing college readiness. Students will be able to live in the Brown residence halls directly on the Brown campus for the durations of the programs ranging from one to four weeks. Students will be able to work with advisors to pick the best course study for their needs and interests. In addition, they will be provided with the mentoring support of our undergraduates who live in the residence halls.


  • SALVE REGINA UNIVERSITY: Salve Regina has indicated all 76 children would receive full consideration for financial aid under their need-based programs. In addition, the University will provide an annual award of $500.00 for books and expenses to any of the children who enroll at Salve Regina. In addition to the financial support, Salve Regina has offered the mentoring services of their faculty to assist any of the 76 children in choosing the right college preparatory courses and working through the college application process. To account for the youngest child who is presently 4 years old, the scholarships will extend until the year 2024.
