RMHC U.S. Scholarships
Students across the country work hard to earn top marks; they dream of the college they'll attend and the education they'll receive.
Unfortunately, many of those students can’t afford to get the education of their dreams.
We want these students to reach their full potential. To help them accomplish this, our network of U.S. Chapters, along with RMHC Global, offer scholarships to students in financial need who have demonstrated academic achievement, leadership and community involvement. Since 1985, more than $48 million in scholarships have been awarded.
