Wavemaker Fellowship

Watch ABC6 coverage of the Wavemaker Fellowship

Too often, well-educated and highly-motivated graduates of Rhode Island colleges and universities leave our state for career opportunities elsewhere. The Wavemaker Fellowship provides a financial incentive for them to stay by defraying student loan payments for up to four years for graduates pursuing careers or starting businesses in technology, engineering, design and other key sectors. Although targeted for grads of our great institutions, anyone working or going to work in a qualifying field in Rhode Island is eligible.
