The Help a Needy Student (HNS) Scholarship Program that was established in 2003 falls under the aegis of the Loyalty Pledge and provides financial assistance to de-serving current Royal students and past Royalist undergraduates in order to fulfill their basic requirements.
RCOBECA anticipates that the program will positively impact the students to grow into well rounded individuals whose future achievements will make the country, their families and Royal College proud.
