Scholarship Program

Scholarships are an investment in our community’s future. By connecting donors, nonprofit organizations and leaders to philanthropic opportunities, we can work together to strengthen the Greater Rochester area.


The Rochester Community Schools Foundation and the Community Foundation of Greater Rochester, in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Rochester and the Rochester Rotary Club, provide area students with a vast array of scholarships to promote continuing education.


There are two separate websites offering scholarships for RCS graduating seniors. Each site has its own scholarship offerings, application and set of instructions.


The scholarship application system is now online. To get started, go to: https://rcs-foundation.org/scholarships/. The deadline for the 2020-2021 school year application submission is January 24, 2021.
