The Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) offer scholarships to students in financial need who have demonstrated academic achievement, leadership and community involvement. Since 1985, $40 million in scholarships have been awarded.
These scholarships are for students in the United States living in areas where there are participating local Chapters. To view a complete list of participating RMHC Chapters, their respective counties, eligibility requirements, and the scholarship applications, check out their site: http://rmhc.org/what-we-do/rmhc-u-s-scholarships/
Students may only apply for one scholarship and the four types available include: RMHC Scholars, RMHC/Asia, RMHC African-American Future Achievers, RMHC Hacer.
HURRY!!! The RMHC Scholarship Deadline is: January 28, 2011
Even if your High School student is not eligible for a College Scholarship yet, you should still print and share a scholarship application with them in preparation. Requirements can include, and, are not limited to, extra-curricular activities at school and in their local communities. Help them start early!
