Submit Your Application

Applicants must answer the following:
“If you were given $1,000,000 to better the lives of Rhode Island’s BIPOC communities either through education, job skills training, business, housing or healthcare, how would you do so?”

Students may submit either an essay of no more than 1,000 words or a video no longer than 3-minutes or a comparable multi-media presentation to answer the question. Essays or videos exceeding those limits will NOT be considered.

Note: The substance and creativity of an application will carry more weight with the judges than the writing style or video production skills of the applicant.

Thank you for your interest in the Transform Rhode Island Scholarship sponsored by the Papitto Opportunity Connection. All submissions for 2023 are complete. Please submit your idea during the next application period.
