Scholarships

Between community partners and funds received from Global Ronald McDonald House Charities, Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California facilitates the RMHC U.S. Scholarship Program.

This program is designed to provide financial assistance to eligible graduating high school seniors who face limited access to educational and career opportunities. Students are selected and awards are distributed based on demonstrated academic achievement, financial need and community involvement. These scholarships are a part of the Charity’s ongoing commitment to education.

Applicants may only apply for one scholarship.
