Scholarship Application

MEF works with many donors throughout the McKinney community to offer scholarships to McKinney ISD students. By applying for the MEF Scholarship, students are applying for many scholarship opportunities with one application. Students are not awarded more than one competitive MEF Scholarship.

The only criteria is the student must be a McKinney ISD graduating senior. Early graduates are also eligible to apply. MEF Scholarship donors offer both academic and financial need scholarships.

Students who have been notified of full military scholarships or who have been awarded full athletic scholarships or any other full scholarships awarded by a college or university will be considered a low priority for scholarships awarded by the MEF Scholarship Committee.

If you choose to offer your scholarship through MEF, we will do most of the work for you. The Scholarship Committee reviews and scores applications while the MEF staff notifies students and sends payments to students’ higher education institutions.

MEF Scholarship Committee

The MEF Scholarship Committee reviews each application and ranks them based on pre-determined criteria. Donors specify the criteria upon which each scholarship is awarded. Typically, criteria includes items such as academic standings, community involvement, intended field of study, and choice of college. Students who are employed shall be equally considered with students who are volunteering in the community.

If you have questions about scholarships or would like to participate with the MEF Scholarship Committee, please contact Kristine Castro, or call 469-302-6313.
