RIC Foundation awarded grant in honor of actress Viola Davis

Posted: Updated:

The Rhode Island College Foundation has been awarded a $10,000 grant by the Entertainment Industry Foundation.

The gift, in honor of actress and Rhode Island native Viola Davis, will benefit the college's Upward Bound Scholarship Endowment Fund.

Davis and her sister, Deloris Davis Grant, started the scholarship.

Both graduated from the Upward Bound program.

The Upward Bound program helps low-income students develop necessary skills to complete high school, and enter and graduate from college.
