The Rattan Creek Neighborhood Association offers 3 individual scholarships up to $500 high school seniors from families that live in RCNA Service Area and are currently paid dues members of the RCNA. Along with the membership requirement, the RCNA requires the following of scholarship applicants:

  • 2017 Scholarship Application
  • Academic achievement.
  • Community Service and/or Public Service (minimum of 8 hours required, with a minimum of 4 hours with the RCNA). Contact the RCNA board if hours are needed!
  • A 2-4 page written essay discussing “What community service means to you”.

If you are in need of community service hours with the RCNA, we can use volunteers at all our events. Simply send an email to with the subject line "Volunteer For Schoolarship" and we will make sure you get the hours you need in order to qualify for the RCNA scholarship. The major events where volunteers are needed are the Annual RCNA Easter Egg Hunt, the Annual RCNA Crawfish Boil, and our Annual Rattan Fest. So get in touch and we'll make sure to make full use of our volunteering teens.

Responses must be postmarked no later than Saturday, May 15, 2017. We are not responsible for any mail lost, delayed or not received. The Scholarship applicants will be notified via phone after the regularly scheduled RCNA board meeting in April. And finalists should be prepared to answer questions in an interview format with the RCNA Board, if requested.
