Year-Round Scholarships through the RCCD Foundation

The RCCD Foundation reviews and collects numerous scholarships from external organizations and entities that can be applied to year-round through their online scholarship system. Students should still do their due diligence during the application process, however, as the Foundation does not endorse any non-Foundation scholarships.
