RCTC Foundation Scholarship Policies
INSTRUCTIONS: To accept your scholarship award, read this form carefully, sign and return it to the RCTC Foundation. The
following items are mandatory requirements for a scholarship. Awardees who do not comply with one or more of these
requirements will have the scholarship award rescinded.
1. Scholarship funds for incoming and returning students may only be used at RCTC and applied toward tuition and fees or
books, unless otherwise specified.
2. Scholarship funds will be deposited with the RCTC business office no earlier than ten days after the start of the semester to
be credited to your tuition bill.
3. If an awarded scholarship is not accepted or disbursed, it will be the option of the RCTC Foundation to award the scholarship
to another candidate, render the scholarship available for application to the current student population, or cancel the
awarding of the scholarship in its entirety.
4. In some cases, scholarship criterion requires recipients to be registered as full-time students. Most scholarships can be
modified for part-time students by pro-rating the award based on credit load. A scholarship recipient who drops below full-
time status after receiving the scholarship disbursement will risk losing the full amount in the following semester.
5. Scholarship recipients are required to continue meeting the scholarship eligibility criteria when the scholarship is disbursed.
For example, a change in major, a significant drop in GPA, or change in financial aid status may disqualify the student for
the award, depending on the scholarship criteria. It is the recipient’s responsibility to be familiar with the scholarship
6. Recipients are required to write a thank you letter for their scholarship, describing what the scholarship means to them.
It should be addressed “Dear RCTC Foundation Scholarship Donor” and sent to the RCTC Foundation office. Please mail or
