New Family Heritage Scholarship

Through the generosity of current and past employees, Rochester Community and Technical College Foundation is proud to award scholarships for children, grandchildren or other descendants of RCTC employees (past and present).

The eligibility requirements, listed below, and the amount and number of scholarships awarded will vary based on the performance of the Foundation’s endowment and number of applications.
