The 2017 McKee Scholarship application is now available!
First awarded in 2009, the McKee Scholarship program is made available thanks to the generosity of the late Hensel McKee, Washington ’30, and his wife Jeanette McKee. The McKee Scholarship Endowment issues three kinds of scholarships: for leadership (Courage), service (Action) and academics (Excellence).

Funds from the McKee Scholarship can also be used for study abroad programs.
