Mayor’s Scholarship Program Now Accepting Applications

Deadline May 20, 2022


PAWTUCKET – Mayor Donald R. Grebien, the City of Pawtucket, the Pawtucket City Council, and the Pawtucket School Department have announced that they are now accepting applications for the Mayor’s Scholarship Program. The scholarship, set up to help assist Pawtucket youth with college tuition costs, was funded through a grant that was generously provided by the Bristol County Savings Charitable Foundation and Revity Energy LLC.


“We are excited to be offering this scholarship program for a fourth year,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “I want to once again thank Bristol County Savings Bank and Revity Energy for their dedication to our students. With so much happening over the past few years, this can be a very uncertain time for our high school seniors and students returning to college, and we hope that this scholarship can help put some of the apprehension aside. I also want to also thank the City Council and School Department for their assistance throughout the process.”


“The Bank and our Foundation focus on supporting education and literacy programs in the communities we serve so we have been working closely with the City on the Mayor's Scholarship Program since its founding four years ago,” said Patrick Murray, President & CEO of Bristol County Savings Bank and President of the Bristol County Savings Charitable Foundation.  “Especially when you consider everything the students from the area have gone through with the pandemic, we are thankful that this program is yet one more way we can help our young people take the next step in their academic journey.”


The application for the deadline is May 20, 2022. Seniors attending Pawtucket Public Schools can obtain and return the application to their guidance counselor or view the application here.


Pawtucket students planning to attend an accredited public or private, vocational technical school, two-year or four-year institution, are eligible to apply for scholarship consideration. The Mayor’s Scholarship Program is designed to aid students of low and moderate-income families in the City of Pawtucket to attend college and universities, as well as vocational technical schools. This local and innovative program is funded through a grant from Bristol County Saving Charitable Foundation and Revity Energy. All information provided will be kept confidential and only shared with the committee and appropriate staff members.
