When investigating scholarships, be sure to note the deadline dates and requirements. Ask about scholarships at any organization to which you or a family member belongs. Employers and churches sometimes offer scholarships as well. All scholarship applicants should have a current completed FAFSA.
Remember: Scholarships do not have to be repaid.
Thanks to generous donations from college employees, alumni, members of the community, businesses and corporations, Reading Area Community College is able to offer the following scholarships to recognize academic achievement. More information on these scholarships can be found in the Financial Aid Handbook.
