RCM Scholarship Application Now Available Online

This year, the RCM Scholarship Committee has moved the application process online! This simplifies the process for students to submit their application.

The RCM Scholarship program is based on a holistic approach to serving students who have the motivation and drive to seek higher education. In addition to a financial award, scholarship recipients receive study skills coaching prior to enrollment as well as the support of a mentor throughout their scholarship experience.

 

RCM mentors give guidance, career and personal advice, and help in navigating the college experience. They are the program’s greatest resource and are committed to building a supportive relationship with their scholars.

 

The amount of a financial aid is determined on an annual basis. Recent awards have ranged from $2,500 and $4,500 per academic year. With satisfactory academic achievement, scholarships may be renewed annually.

 

Applications for the RCM Scholarship are to be submitted electronically via the link on the Rotary website by March 1, 2020.

Applicants must:

• Have achieved a GPA that will qualify them for entry into an appropriate institution. (Rotary does not have specific requirements for academic achievement.)

• Demonstrate financial need.

• Live in the City of Milwaukee.

• Complete the application in full, include letter(s) of reference, and an original essay.
