RMHC U.S. Scholarships


Scholarship Value: $1,000

Students across the country work hard to earn top marks, dreaming of the college they'll attend and the education they'll receive. Unfortunately, many of these students won’t be able to afford it.

We want these students to reach their full potential. To help them accomplish this, our network of U.S. Chapters, along with the global office of RMHC, offer scholarships to students in financial need who have demonstrated academic achievement, leadership and community involvement. Since 1985, more than $56 million in scholarships have been awarded.

Beginning October 1, 2015, students may apply online. Graduating high school seniors may only apply for one of the four scholarships. The deadline for the 2016 academic year is January 20, 2016 at 11:59 PM Central Time Zone, and all mailed back-up documents must be postmarked by the same date. Applicants will be notified of scholarship award status by June 30, 2016.
