Over 14 years ago RCWS launched a Scholarship Program for disadvantaged children in Russia to assist orphans in their transition to independent adult life by helping them attain a higher education. During this time, the number of participants has grown from three in the 2003-2004 academic year to 122 college students in 2016-2017 in the Pskov, Yaroslavl, and Moscow regions. 

RCWS has been expanding the scholarship program, adding new partners and increasing the number of participants. Currently, RCWS provides scholarships to 15 young musicians affiliated with the Spivakov Foundation, established by renowned concert violinist Vladimir Spivakov, to help disadvantaged children in Russia develop musical and artistic talent.
