PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Nearly ninety Providenceschool alumni and their families received the "Edward Hinkling Bradford" scholarship Monday night.
"Targeted to college-bound seniors and graduates, the scholarships are awarded by need, as well as extracurricular and community involvement," said Laura Hart with Providence Public Schools. "Funds go directly to students and are intended to defray the cost of books, technology, or transportation. Funding comes from a $1.9-million private trust that was recently reactivated under the Elorza administration."
