Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana recognizes the importance of continuing education and the expenses associated with obtaining a college degree. RMHCCIN’s scholarship program is funded by Central Indiana McDonald’s restaurants. Since 2008, we have awarded more than $900,000 in scholarships to students in financial need who have demonstrated academic achievement, leadership, and community involvement.

This year, RMHCCIN will award a $5,000 scholarship to a select number of Central Indiana high school seniors. 

The application is currently closed until next Fall.
