2018 LRRI SCHOLARSHIP
Let’s Read Rhode Island is a program committed to promoting literacy and a love of reading in the lives of children and young adults: “Rewarding Reading until Reading’s the Reward.” By partnering with local area businesses to provide incentives to children who have completed reading assignments, LRRI has been able to demonstrate the rewards of reading to young children. As a part of this mission, and in recognition that teachers have a huge impact on students’ ability and perception regarding reading, LRRI will be awarding a scholarship to a qualified student pursuing higher education with the intent to teach.
