Grant Program


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.

How to Apply:

Beginning October 1, 2014, students may apply online by clicking here. Graduating high school seniors may only apply for one of the four scholarships. Applicants will be notified of scholarship award status in June 2015. The deadline for the 2015 academic year is January 20, 2015 and all mailed back-up documents must be postmarked by the same date.
