(LNESC) is partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC) to help promote the RMHC/HACER scholarship program to qualifying high school seniors across the U.S.
RMHC/HACER is one of the largest scholarships in the country assisting Hispanic high school students pursuing a college education. Since its inception in 1985, more than $24 million has been awarded in scholarships to Hispanic students to support their college education dreams. The program expanded in 2008 to include four RMHC/HACER National Scholarships of $100,000 to be awarded annually to deserving high school graduates. Scholarships are awarded on a national and regional level. Applications for the 2013-2014 RMHC/HACER National Scholarship will be accepted from October 1st through January 21st, 2014.
