Since 1996, the RRPAA has been awarding scholarships to PA students. The scholarship recipients are chosen by the Board of Directors based on:

The topic is determined by the board yearly. The scholarships are awarded by check at the RRPAA Spring Conference.
The current criteria for scholarship eligibility is as follows:
- The applicant must be a PA student in good standing
- Expected to be in the final 3 years of the program
- Student membership in the RRPAA is also required
