The RCTC Foundation offers a variety of scholarships to incoming, returning, and graduating students. All scholarships offered through the RCTC Foundation are made possible by generous donors supporting the effort to provide scholarship and program support to students who might not otherwise have the resources to pursue higher education. Most RCTC students juggle multiple responsibilities -- balancing work, family and career preparation. Especially in difficult times, a scholarship can make all the difference.
Application deadline for the 2013/2014 academic year was February 24, 2013.
Incoming Student scholarships are for first-time students new to RCTC and just beginning their course of studies at the College. New students must also submit an official copy of their most recent transcript.

The Rochester Community and Technical College Foundation Board of Directors thanks its donors for supporting the effort to provide persons the opportunity to advance their education. Scholarships are important because they act as an incentive to attract or retain top quality students in our community. Many of these students want the advantage of attending a small school capable of providing individual attention. A significant number are non-traditional students, looking to expand their opportunities and abilities with additional education. Others are seeking certification or training to enter the workforce with a marketable skill.
But, no matter what the reason for attending Rochester Community and Technical College, scholarships change lives!
