"The hard work, dedication, and commitment to education and community service exemplified by these remarkable students is exactly what the Ronald McDonald House Charities Scholars program stands for," said Christopher Perry, executive director of Ronald McDonald House Charities New York Tri-State Area. "I am extremely proud of what these students have accomplished, and we know they will continue to achieve great things in the future."

The five recipients will be recognized for their achievements at an upcoming Ronald McDonald House Charities Scholars luncheon taking place Wednesday, July 30 at the Ronald McDonald House of New York. The students and their families will be joined by RMHC-NYTSA Scholars selection committee members, local public officials, and Ronald McDonald to celebrate their achievements.

RMHC-NYTSA offers graduating high school seniors from local communities the chance to apply for college tuition assistance through its four scholarship programs: the RMHC/Asian-Pacific Students Increasing Achievement Scholarship, the RMHC/African American Future Achievers Scholarship, the RMHC/Hispanic American Commitment to Educational Resources Scholarship, and the RMHC General Scholars Scholarship (to which students of all ethnicities are eligible to apply). To be eligible for the scholarship awards, applicants had to be graduating high school seniors planning to attend a two- or four-year college or university with a complete course of study. Applicants must be legal U.S. residents, younger than 21-years-old, and must reside within the geographical boundaries of the participating RMHC New York Tri-State Area.

RMHC began its support of scholarship programs in 1985 by committing $50,000 toward its first scholarships, which were awarded through the Hispanic American Commitment to Educational Resources program. In 2001, the RMHC/ASIA and RMHC African American Future Achievers Scholarships began. Since 1985, more than $44 million in scholarships have been awarded by U.S. Chapters and RMHC Global.
