REMEMBER A LOVED ONE WITH A SCHOLARSHIP
You can create a lasting memorial to a loved one by sponsoring a scholarship in their name. But for many families and organizations, the responsibility for administering a scholarship on their own - recruiting applicants, preparing objective forms, evaluating applications, selecting recipients and presenting awards - can be a burden.

When a loved one passes away, families can designate Scholarship Foundation of East Providence to receive memorial contributions. Memorial envelopes will be provided to the funeral home.
