For those wishing to enroll at Rappahannock Community College for the academic year of 2017-18, the period during which they can apply for scholarships is quickly coming to an end, with a submission deadline of 11:59 p.m., Friday, February 17. The scholarship application—now set up as a completely electronic process—is available online to current or prospective students from a link at RCC’s website; on the front page, click on “Scholarships” from the drop-down menu under “Foundation.”
Well over $400,000 in scholarships, offered under a completely separate process from federal and state financial aid, are available for the upcoming year. Filling out the application just once puts students under consideration for all of them, and due to a new and more efficient review process, scholarship recipients will be notified of their awards by mid-April.
“The college’s goal,” says RCC president Dr. Elizabeth Crowther, “is to make it possible for any student with the ability and desire to learn to attend and receive a degree from RCC. A growing base of available scholarships coupled with federal and state financial assistance programs will make that dream a reality.”
