Over $400,000 in scholarships are available to students who will be enrolled at Rappahannock Community College in the next academic year (2018-19). Deadline to apply is February 16, 2018. Scholarships are available to full-time and part-time students. Applicants complete one scholarship application form, which puts them in the running for over 100 awards.
