The Rhode Island Independent Contractors and Associates established this Scholarship Program to assist children, grandchildren, members and spouses of members of RIICA. The RIICA Board of Directors unanimously approved the naming one of the Scholarship Awards as the Neil Sullivan Memorial Scholarship Award in memory of the longtime member of RIICA.
One RIICA and one Neil Sullivan Memorial Scholarship Awards are based on the studentís Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores as well as such personal qualities as character and leadership ability. A candidate must be in the upper half of his or her graduating class, have a C average or better at the time of the application, or the applicant must have a high school diploma or equivalent.
The two(2) Scholarship Awards will be in the amount of $ 1,000.00 each, payable to those selected, after their acceptance and enrollment in an accredited college, university, vocational, technical institution that require a high school diploma for admission.
To receive the Scholarship Awards, you must apply and be accepted for enrollment at an eligible institution in a full-time or half-time program leading to a degree or certificate. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE ACCEPTED TO AN INSTITUTION BEFORE APPLYING.
