Student Support & Scholarships
The RCC Foundation has provided more than $3 million in scholarships to students.
Each year, the RCC Foundation awards more than $350,000 in scholarships to incoming, continuing/returning, and graduating students, and has awarded more than $3 million in scholarships awards since its inception.
Criteria: Recipients of these scholarships are selected based on various criteria, including academic achievement, athletic or artistic talents, being a member of underrepresented groups, residing in the county, high school attended, and demonstrated financial need.
Application procedures vary according to scholarship type and criteria. Availability and descriptions of scholarships are subject to change without notice. For a complete listing please call 845-574-4403.
Incoming students are defined as current high school seniors completing course work at their high school, or at RCC as Early Admit students, or new adult students who have never attended RCC. For either group of applicants, you may not have completed more than nine college credits at any college or university.
New students are considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible, but if there are one or more particular scholarships in which they are interested, they must be sure to note that at the end of their scholarship essay.
