Eligibility requirements to receive your scholarship
Complete your required online scholarship acceptance, which will also include a donor thank you, by the date specified in your Notification Email. If you fail to do this, your scholarship will be forfeited.
You must meet all of the criteria listed for your scholarship. If no GPA or credit requirements are listed, then the 6 credit per term minimum and 2.50 GPA per term apply, as well as maintaining satisfactory academic progress. Some scholarships require acceptance into specific programs. Failure to meet these requirements can result in the forfeiture of your scholarship.
Update your contact information
- Scholarships that are renewable, are available for up to two additional years unless noted differently in the scholarship description. You will need to complete the RCC Foundation Scholarship Renewal form that will be emailed to you in March to be eligible for the renewal each year. You must continue to meet all the scholarship qualifications. Renewals are subject to the funds being available.
Foundation Scholarship Exception Request
Payment of any excess balance on your RCC student account is made on or after the end of the second week of each term. If you did not receive your funds, it is possible that you no longer meet the requirements to maintain your award. If you have special circumstances that you would like the Foundation to review, you will need to fill out a Foundation Scholarship Exception Request Form
