Each year, the RCC Foundation awards more than $350,000 in student scholarships. Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded almost $4 million in student scholarship awards. Recipients are awarded based on various criteria including academic achievement, athletic or artistic talents, being a member of an underrepresented group, residing in the County, high school attended, and demonstrated financial need.

RCC Foundation scholarships are available for new RCC students, continuing RCC students, and even for RCC graduates continuing their education at a 4-year college.

The 2016 RCC Foundation Scholarships for Continuing/Graduating Students application deadline was Friday, April 1, 2016.  We are no longer accepting scholarship applications!
