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. That’s why Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is pleased to offer RMHC U.S. Scholarships to helping students afford the education of their dreams. The purpose of scholarship is to assist the students who have demonstrated academic achievement, leadership and community involvement.

There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. Every student has some skill, interest, experience, or characteristic that may make them an attractive candidate for one scholarship or another. And while we often refer to scholarships as “free money,” scholarships don’t actually come for free. It takes work to thoughtfully consider your strengths and research the scholarships that might be most appropriate for you. While the effort that goes into finding and winning scholarships may be akin to a part-time job, we at College Coach want to make your job a little easier. This on-going scholarship series highlights a new scholarship each week. Check out the below, along with the other posts in the series, and you may discover a funding resource that will make covering that college bill a little (or a lot!) easier.
Many students, even those who earn top grades, are concerned about college affordability. Scholarships are made available to students across the US from the Ronald McDonald charities to help alleviate some of the financial burden on students and their families.
