Ronald McDonald House Charities HACER Scholarship Program

Local Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) Chapters, with support from RMHC Global and McDonald’s Corporation (McDonald’s®), offer scholarships to students from communities who face limited access to educational and career opportunities. These scholarships are part of the charities’ ongoing commitment to education.


Eligibility
- Currently enrolled high school seniors who have at least one parent of Hispanic heritage and who are eligible to attend a two- or four-year college, university or vocational/technical school with a complete course of study.
- Applicants must be legal U.S. residents, be less than 21 years of age and reside within the geographic boundaries of a participating Chapter that offers a scholarship under the HACER program.
- Applicants may apply for only 1 RMHC scholarship program. Please refer to RMHC.org to
confirm which scholarship programs are offered in your county.

For RMHC/Hacer only, applications are accepted nationwide regardless of the presence of participating Local RMHC Chapter. Eligible students must submit a complete application and attach all of the required documentation or their application will not be reviewed. Scholarship funds will be applied toward tuition, fees and other appropriate educational expenses, as determined by RMHC. Note: Only submit an application once. Do not fill out an online application and mail in a hard copy.

Scholarship recipients must enroll in and attend a two or four-year accredited college or university or vocational/technical school in the academic year following their selection. Verification of enrollment is required. Scholarship funds will be paid via check directly to the accredited institution in which the student enrolls. Scholarship funds will not be paid directly, nor reimbursed, to an award recipient.

Applications will be available for the upcoming academic year beginning in October. Please visit our website at that time for additional information.
