Scholarships can be awarded for students looking to study a certain major, or a student with a good Grade Point Average, or even where a student lives. Cordulack says it never hurts to come in and fill out an application and see what you could be eligible for.

Many of the scholarships would not be possible without the support of private, corporate or individual donations. Cordulack says the support of those in the community who realize what an asset RCC can be for young students is the reason they are able to offer opportunities through financial contributions.
