Apply for Scholarships

A college education is a dream for many and unfortunately, for some, is not attainable due to financial constraints. At Rochester Community and Technical College, we make that dream possible by providing a quality education at an affordable price.

The RCTC Foundation believes that the greatest gift a student can receive is a scholarship. Scholarships provide tremendous opportunities and financial assistance to talented RCTC students.

We provide scholarship awards each year to incoming, returning and graduating/transferring RCTC students. Scholarship awards range in value from $200 to $5,000 and are available for full-time and part-time students. The online application portal will be open January 4 – February 12, 2021.
