  • Scholarship Description
  • With education costs spiraling ever higher, a college education is beyond the financial reach of many outstanding students. The RMHC Scholarship Program opens the door to higher education for graduating high school seniors who face limited access to educational and career opportunities.

    Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeastern Ohio, Inc., (RMHC-NEO) will award 60 scholarships for $1,000 and 4 scholarships of $2,000 each, one of which will be renewable for two years.

    The RMHC Scholarship Program seeks to invest in students who are exemplary role models in their communities and have the initiative to fulfill their educational goals. The goal of the program is simple: to identify and invest in future leaders.

    The RMHC Scholarship Program is comprised of four individual scholarships. There will be one online application for all four scholarships.

    • RMHC®/ASIA (Asian Students Increasing Achievement) Applicant must have at least one parent of Asian-Pacific heritage
