Scholarships Change Lives

By donating to scholarships, our alumni, parents and friends are changing lives and making dreams come true. You can provide direct assistance to Salve Regina students with a gift to one of our existing scholarships, which help students in a variety of majors and recognize campus leadership and a commitment to service to the community.

In recent years, a number of new funds have been established by individuals who wish to create a legacy, recognize achievement and provide financial assistance to Salve Regina students. For more information on establishing your own named scholarship, contact Victoria Duclos at (401) 341-2345.
