The Rogue Ambassador scholarship pays one-half of the recipient's tuition (up to nine credits) in the first year following high school graduation and full tuition (up to 18 credits per term) in the second year if all eligibility requirements are met. The scholarship does not include summer term tuition, college fees, or books/supply expenses. You may apply for other RCC scholarships through the RCC Foundation but if you qualify for the Rogue Ambassador Scholarship you will be removed from the RCC scholarship pool. Please indicate on your Foundation Scholarship application that you have applied for the RA Scholarship as well.
Rogue Ambassadors are required to attend special classes, perform volunteer service, satisfactorily complete 36 credits each year, and maintain a 3.5 cumulative GPA.

*The Rogue Ambassador scholarship has a maximum of 50 accepted students, if more than 50 qualified students apply - placement test scores will be used as criteria to determine acceptance and a waitlist will be developed. Please see information below regarding retesting.
You must have an RCC placement test score on file at the time of your application for the scholarship. You may take the test a maximum of two times to meet the minimum placements. The placement test can be taken on an RCC campus or through an RCC placement test administered on your high school campus.
