2020 RMPCA Academic Scholarship Program

One of the primary directives of the RMPCA is to raise funds from our annual golf tournament to be awarded in the form of an annual scholarship to high school seniors and actively enrolled college and university students.

We received 23 scholarship applications by the midnight deadline! The kids worked hard and put a lot of thought into their essays on climate change, and the RMPCA is proud to help them succeed on their education path!
