Students across northern Nevada work hard at school but for many the cost of secondary education prohibits them from the career of their choice. As one of the largest of its kind in northern Nevada, the RMHC® Northern Nevada Scholarship Program helps relieve the financial burden of college for students so they can pursue their dreams.
This scholarship is offered to students who demonstrate a blend of financial need, academic achievement, leadership, and community involvement. Funds are raised through the charity’s scholarship committee so we can provide financial assistance in the amount of $1,000 per selected student.
Since 2000, we have awarded more than $1.46 million in scholarship dollars to northern Nevada students. In 2018, Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Nevada awarded 40 scholarships to graduating high school seniors from northern Nevada.
The application period for a first-year scholarship is from December 1, 2020, to April 1, 2021.
Applicants for the 2020-2021 academic season will be notified of their award status by the end of June 2021.
