Who is eligible? Any Rum River Hills Men's Club member in good standing can sponsor himself, his spouse, or his child. The sponsor must be a full-pay member of the Men's Club, have qualified for the Club Championship for the previous two consecutive years before applying, and must qualify for the Club Championship the years they apply, are announced, and receive funds.
How much is the scholarship worth?
Accepted applicants are eligible for a lifetime award of up to $1,000.
If funds are available, the award will be paid in yearly installments of
$500. The sponsor needs to apply only one time.
Restrictions: There is a $1,000 per year limit for any given family and a $3,000 lifetime family maximum. If a student is getting a full scholarship, they are not eligible. You must submit tuition receipts from the school to be able to get the scholarship.
Timeline: See scholarship application form for specific dates. These will vary year to year. Awards are announced at the
Spring Meeting in the following year, and the applicant then completes
the coursework in the following school year. The applicant must submit
receipts showing payment for tuition and course fees along with a
transcript showing that a 2.0+ GPA, or its equivalent, has been earned.
The applicant must submit all documentation by August 1st
of the year in which you are to be paid, or the scholarship is
forfeited for that year. Scholarship checks are made out to the
applicant and can be picked up by the sponsor. Where does the scholarship money come from?
Scholarship money comes from the RRH Pro-Am, RRHMC events, and individual
contributions. This is a great fund for your charitable contributions,
as 100% of all contributions are paid directly to recipients who have
demonstrated successful scholarly activity.
