Scholarships

RCTC is an exceptional value, but even affordable schools can be out of reach for some students. Scholarships help to ease the financial burden for most student
and do not need to be repaid.

Thanks to our generous donors, the RCTC Foundation will offer over $460,000 in scholarships for the 2022-2023 academic year. Scholarships help pay for tuition,
textbooks, and class fees, and each award is based on a variety of criteria such as area of study, demographics, financial need, GPA, etc. Scholarship applications are accepted three times a year.
