High school graduation will soon be upon us and for many graduates it will mean taking the next step educationally.
As we all know, paying for the next step of an education can be costly and one way to help with the cost can come in the form of a scholarship. The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) is a great resource for students in the area.
The RCCF awards tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships each year. In 2019, RCCF was able to award $146,435.00 in scholarships. RCCF oversees more than two dozen scholarships that are available to youth in the county.
Graduating seniors from Charlton Heston Academy, Houghton Lake Community Schools, Immanuel Christian School and Roscommon Area Public Schools can – and should – apply for scholarships available through RCCF. The applications are available at the RCCF website, MyRCCF.org. The deadline is March 2nd at 3:00 pm.
We encourage students and parents to visit the RCCF website and read about the many scholarships that are offered. They range from specific (a scholarship for students entering health career education/training programs) to broad. Scholarships are available for traditional college programs as well as vocational and technical training.
Scholarships through the RCCF are a tremendous resource for our students – so be sure to encourage any graduating senior to fill out the application.
