Minority Scholarship Application 

RISPA is pleased to announce the thirteenth year of the RISPA Minority Scholarship Award!

RISPA annually awards a scholarship to at least one or two qualified minority graduate students of school psychology. This scholarship was established to provide financial support to help mitigate the financial burdens associated with an extended academic program and to infuse the profession with a needed presence of diversity and cultural awareness.

To be eligible a student must attend a School Psychology/Educational Psychology program in Rhode Island or be a resident of RI attending an out of state program. Out of state students, including international students, attending RI programs may also apply. 

A student must be a person of color and/or speak a language other than English with excellent proficiency. Students who are bi-lingual must intend to use the second language in their practice as a school psychologist. This year's recipient will be awarded a scholarship amount of $1000.
