How to Apply for The McKeel Legacy Scholarship


In the 10 years since the scholarships were established, over $70,000 has been awarded to over 20 graduating McKeel seniors to help pay for their college expenses and help them realize their college dreams. Board members, teachers from all 3 schools and other staff members contribute to the scholarship fund each year to make these scholarships possible. We believe in our students and want to invest in their futures.


Seniors graduating from McKeel Academy of Technology:


This competitive award process starts with the review of the anonymous essays from the completed online applications. The application questions and supporting documents are scored and the top scoring applicants advance to the next step – The Interview. The anonymous essays and resumes of those top applicants are submitted to the Selection Panel of staff from The Schools of McKeel Academy. This Selection Panel interviews and selects the scholarship winners. The awards will be presented during the Senior Recognition Night.


The amount of the scholarship are based on the amount donated to the Scholarship Fund. The Selection Panel determines the amount of each scholarship awarded after the finalist interviews.
