The Ronald McDonald House Charities annually
offers the African American Future Achievers Scholarship to high
school seniors. Unfortunately, participation and application for
this scholarship has dwindled so low over the last few years, that
the charity is considering cutting the funding.
Please encourage all African American high school seniors to
apply at http://www.aim.applyists.net/RMHC by early
January 2017. I also ask that you pass it to anyone else you
believe may benefit from this opportunity.
Scholarship deadlines and eligibility requirements vary. If you
need a letter of recommendation, please contact your counselor.
Please note: letters of recommendation need a 2 week advance
