Complete your FAFSA First: Many, but not all, of the RCC scholarships are need-based. Even if you do not think you will qualify for a need based scholarship, it is highly recommended that you complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to help match you with all the scholarships for which you may be eligible. You may complete a FAFSA at https://fafsa.ed.gov, using the RCC School Code 009160, to ensure that we receive your application.
If you need additional assistance, please contact the Glenns Financial Aid office at 804-758-6735 or the Warsaw Financial Aid office at 804-333-6743. For more information, visit our Financial Aid section.
Submit your scholarship application: Scholarships can be combined with federal and state financial aid or used alone to cover the cost of RCC tuition and fees. The average scholarship amount is $1561, which represents approximately 30% of full-time tuition and fees and even more if you attend part-time.
Scholarships at Rappahannock Community College have been established through the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations to recognize outstanding performances and to assist students in pursuing quality higher education. We thank them for their support.
Because we believe that no one should be denied access to higher education due to a critical shortage of funds, the Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation, Inc. continually seeks private support for college scholarship and grant programs. For further information, see your high school counselor or visit the Financial Aid Office at Rappahannock Community College.
