The Ronald McDonald House Charities® U.S. Scholarship program is designed to provide financial assistance to eligible graduating high school seniors who face limited access to educational and career opportunities. Scholarships are awarded by the local Ronald McDonald House Charities® Chapter, with support from Ronald McDonald House Charities® Global and McDonald’s Corporation. Students are selected, and awards are distributed based on demonstrated academic achievement, community involvement/leadership and financial need.
