their own communities. The RMHC Scholars Scholarship is offered unilaterally to children of all backgrounds
and ethnicities based on an assessment of academic achievement and need. Through the RMHC Scholars
Scholarship Program, the focus will be on opening the door to higher education for graduating high school

education and express a commitment to serve their community. These students have varying academic
