Student Support & Scholarships

The RCC Foundation is Here to Help

Each year, the RCC Foundation awards thousands of dollars to RCC students in need. Since its inception, the RCC Foundation has awarded almost $4 million in student awards to new, continuing and transfer students at RCC.

Support is available through:


Scholarship Fund

Recipients are awarded based on various criteria including financial need, demonstrated community service, academic achievement, artistic talent, and even high school attended. Awards are available to local and international students, and new, continuing and transfer students.

Students will be notified of scholarship awards by the week of May 24th. Please check your RCC email account. Awards winners will be required to attend a Scholarship Information Session by Zoom on May 25th at 10 am or 5 pm. All details will be included in the scholarship notification email.


President’s Student Support Fund

The President’s Student Support Fund (PSSF) provides financial assistance to RCC students so they are able to maintain enrollment and excel academically and personally. The Fund provides support for direct educational costs such as tuition, fees, and textbooks.

The Application process is open throughout the year and students can apply anytime.


Emergency Fund

RCC students who are in need of emergency aid, such as funding for housing or food, can apply for awards of up to $500.  The funds are limited and are available for emergencies once per academic year.

The Application process is open throughout the year and students can apply anytime.
