Scholarship Awards Ceremony

The Scholarship Awards Ceremony is an exciting event held to give public recognition to students who were 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 hundreds of deserving students are awarded scholarships to 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.
