RMHC U.S. Scholarship Programs
Did you know that RMHC Phoenix has a scholarship program? In 2017, we awarded 90 scholarships to high school seniors from Central and Northern Arizona!
RMHC, Inc. began its support of scholarship programs in 1985 by committing $50,000 toward the first scholarships awarded through the Hispanic American Commitment to Educational Resources (HACER) program. In 2001, the RMHC/ASIA (Asian Students Increasing Achievement) and RMHC African American Future Achievers scholarships were created. Most recently in 2005, as part of an effort to increase the reach of its scholarship program, RMHC, Inc. launched the RMHC U.S. Scholars program to include students of all backgrounds. RMHC Phoenix participates in the HACER, RMHC African American Future Achievers and RMHC U.S. Scholars program, so students of any background can apply for the scholarship program.
To apply for a RMHC Phoenix Scholarship, students must:
- Reside in Central or Northern Arizona
- Be a legal U.S. resident

RMHC of Phoenix, Inc. will award a maximum of $2,500 scholarship or a minimum of $1,500 scholarship to each selected eligible high school senior.
The RMHC Scholarship Program for 2016-2017 is now closed. The application period for the 2017-2018 program will open in the fall.
