A Long Standing Commitment to Education
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Denver with the support from RMHC Global offer scholarships to students from communities who face limited access to educational and college opportunities. These scholarships are part of the charities' ongoing commitment to education.
Helping students afford the education of their dreams
Students across the country work hard to earn top marks, dreaming of the college they'll attend and the education they'll receive. Unfortunately, many of these students won't be able to afford it.
We want these students to reach their full potential. To help them accomplish this, we offer scholarships to students in financial need who have demonstrated academic achievement, leadership and community involvement. Since 1985, more than $52 million in scholarships have been awarded.
Scholarships are for students in the United States living in areas where there are participating local RMHC Chapters such as the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Denver.
