The RMHC National Scholarship Program is supported through the efforts of neighborhood McDonald’s owner/operators, local and national Ronald McDonald House Charities and the McDonald’s Corporation.

Last year, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Phoenix, with the support of Arizona McDonald’s owner/operators, awarded $215,000 in scholarships to 86 Arizona high school students, according to the release.

Local Chapters of Ronald McDonald House Charities, with support from RMHC Global, McDonald’s Corporation and McDonald’s restaurants, offer scholarships to students of all backgrounds from communities who face limited access to educational and career opportunities. These scholarships are part of the RMHC and McDonald’s ongoing commitment to education.

Since 1995, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Phoenix has generated more than $2.4 million in funding for the National Scholarship program to benefit Arizona high school students.

As a result, approximately 1,200 Arizona students have received scholarships to help make their dreams of attending college a reality.
