Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC®)/African American Future Achievers, a national scholarship program, was introduced during the 2001-2002 academic year. The mission of the program is to recognize young people in the African American community for their accomplishments, potential and commitment to serve the community.

 

The RMHC/Future Achievers program awards up 15 total scholarships, two in the amount of $5,000 and 13 in the amount of $1,000 to students who demonstrate academic achievement and community service, among other criteria. A panel of judges comprised of key leaders within the African American community, and representatives from McDonald’s® and RMHC of the Philadelphia Region selected this year’s winners, representing Southeastern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and Delaware.
