Our scholarship program is a key component of our mission to provide for the higher education of students from the Chicagoaland area.
Each year, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana awards $4,000/year, renewable scholarships to extraordinary area high school seniors who are committed to community service and academic excellence.
Once awarded, our scholarships are renewable for four years of college, contingent upon the student maintaining a specified G.P.A. and performing hours of community service each year.
Since 2006, we have awarded more than $1 million dollars to 102 students and have assisted 45 students in achieving their college degrees. Our ability to award scholarships to outstanding young adults comes from local fund raising events, corporate and private donations, and canister proceeds from local McDonald’s restaurants.
Applications are generally available in October at rmhc.org and due in January or February of the student’s senior year in high school.
