Scholarship Description

As a part of the RMHC commitment to education, local RMHC Chapters, with support of RMHC Global, offer scholarships to eligible graduating U.S. high school seniors who face limited access to educational and career opportunities in their communities.

Scholarship awards are given based on a student’s demonstrated academic achievement, financial need and community involvement. Depending on strategic goals and community needs, participating local RMHC Chapters could specify additional selection criteria.

* Be eligible to attend a two- or four-year college or university with a full course of study
* Live in a participating local RMHC Chapter's geographic area
