Rhode Island College gets grant for first-generation pupils
Today's good news was submitted by Joe Dobkin, co-creator of this site.
Per Joe, this is "not the typical 'feel good story,' but these days positive news regarding education is hard to come by. Also, I wanted to dig up some good news from my community (Rhode Island)."
"This article reports on a fantastic grant awarded to Rhode Island College for 'first generation' students. Sounds like an amazing way to get the money to kids who are taking initiative and want to 'do more' than their parents and grandparents were able to. US education is key to the next generation of Americans and US growth....and needs to a bigger part of the conversation!"
