Paying off student loans? Apply to Wavemaker today!

Wavemaker Fellowship Application is Open


I’m writing with some exciting news – the new application period for the Wavemaker Fellowship Program is now live! We look forward to accepting a new cohort of fellows in 2023.

Launched in 2016, the Wavemaker Fellowship provides up to $6k/year for professionals working in STEM/Design and the healthcare sector who carry student loan debt.

The Wavemaker Fellowship helps Rhode Island companies recruit and retain employees in these high-demand fields. This funding is our way of saying thank you to the professionals who choose to put their talents to work in the Ocean State.

Wavemaker applications will be accepted until Wednesday, June 14, 2023, and we appreciate any assistance you can provide in helping us share the news with your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues.

For more details, FAQs, and the complete application, please visit https://wavemaker.commerceri.com/. For additional questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to wavemaker@commerceri.com.

Best wishes,

The Rhode Island Commerce Team
