Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island Employees Scholarship Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.

In no instance does any officer or employee of Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island or the BCBSRI Employees Scholarship Foundation play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award. Up to four (4) awards will be granted. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Students may only receive the award a maximum of two (2) years. Awards are for undergraduate study only.
