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.

 

RMHC of the Philadelphia Region, Inc. is dedicated to supporting programs that improve the lives of children and families. RMHC “lifts children to a better tomorrow” through support of three scholarship programs for high school seniors; the Philadelphia, Southern New Jersey and Delaware Ronald McDonald Houses; the St. Christopher’s Foundation for Children Ronald McDonald Care Mobile; 13 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms in local hospitals and grants to local not-for-profit organizations for support of programs benefitting children.
