ISELIN, N.J., Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ronald McDonald House Charities® New York Tri-State Area (RMHC®-NYTSA) announced it will be awarding four-year scholarships to local graduating high school seniors. Applications are now available online at https://aim.applyists.net for students in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut (Fairfield County) areas. The submission deadline is January 21, 2014.
RMHC-NYTSA has been able to transform the lives of eligible graduating high school seniors who face limited access to educational opportunities by virtue of their financial background.

The scholarships are distributed based on demonstrated academic achievement, financial need and community involvement.
"At RMHC, we believe it is imperative to provide support for the next generation to receive a proper education so that they may have the opportunity to fulfill their dreams, regardless of their financial background," said Christopher Perry, Executive Director of Ronald McDonald House Charities New York Tri State Area. "By giving tomorrow's innovators and thought leaders a foundation to build upon, we are confident their futures will be bright."
The RMHC-NYSTA Scholarship program is comprised of the following four individual scholarship programs:
Ronald McDonald House Charities began its support of scholarship programs in 1985 by committing $50,000 toward its first scholarships, which were awarded through the Hispanic American Commitment to Educational Resources (HACER) program. In 2001, the RMHC/ASIA (Asian Students Increasing Achievement) and RMHC African American Future Achievers Scholarships (RMHC/AAFA) began.
