Scholarship Awards Ceremony

The Scholarship Awards Ceremony is an exciting event held to give recognition to students who are selected as scholarship recipients for their exemplary achievements. Scholarship awards are made based on a combination of factors, including financial need, demonstrated academic excellence, student life involvement, or social contributions.

Each year, deserving students are awarded scholarships to attend Rochester Community and Technical College. Due to the growing number of scholarships being awarded, the Scholarship Awards Ceremony is divided into two presentation sessions to give proper recognition to the achievements of our recipients.

Family and friends of the recipients are also invited to attend the ceremony to share in the celebration with their student. Guests of scholarship recipients may use any of the campus parking areas at no charge. Permits are not required. Use the east entrance to the RCTC Regional Sports Center directly off of the north parking lot. Be sure all cell phones are turned off or on silent mode prior to the start of the ceremony.

Recipient Instructions

  • Recipients are required to submit both a Scholarship Acceptance Form and a ceremony RSVP form to the RCTC Foundation Office.
