Roger Williams University Corporate Scholars Program

The Corporate Scholars Program is a unique initiative designed to offer businesses a distinctive role in supporting promising students who need financial assistance in order to pursue their educational goals. Roger Williams University provides more than 95% of its students with some form of financial aid. Still, the cost of education is on the rise nationally, and the need for additional scholarship resources continues to grow.

By supporting the Roger Williams University Annual Fund through the Corporate Scholars Program, your business will make a sound investment in the education of today’s students and their educational achievements as tomorrow’s leaders. Your commitment will lay the foundation for their success as they become productive citizens of the communities in which they live and work.

Please support the Corporate Scholars Program at Roger Williams University and help a qualified student afford the education they so deserve. Gifts to the program are welcomed at all levels and will be recognized in a variety of ways. In addition, representatives from your business will be invited to attend a scholarship celebration event with the RWU community, including students, alumni, administration, and donors.

For more information and to participate in the Corporate Scholars Program, please contact Lauren Tierney Swensen, Director of Annual Giving at (401) 254-3262 / .
