Demers Fellows Program for Rhode Islanders

The Demers Fellows Program for Rhode Islanders is via the generous gift from the late Professor Beatrice Demers to the RI Foundation.  Beatrice taught languages at URI for many years and believed in the transformative nature of studying languages and also appreciated the value of studying them abroad.

Please alert potential applicants that they must apply online. Applications must be submitted through the Foundation’s website,

More information about the fellowship may also be found on the RI Foundation website.  Applicants from URI who wish to build their fluency in a language other than English (applications from our academic community receive preference in the award process) are encouraged to apply. Applications are due January 21, 2011.
