This is a $900 per semester award for the Fall and Spring

Questions should be directed to Dr. Pavelko, HBS 1004, pavelksl@jmu.edu 

The McKay Scholarship was established in 1988 by family and friends in memory of Robin McKay, a student in the CSD department at JMU. After finishing her undergraduate degree, Robin joined the Peace Corps for two years. She founded a program for deaf children in Kingston, Jamaica. Robin died suddenly, just days after finishing with the Peace Corps and weeks prior to entering graduate school in Audiology. The recipient of this scholarship will be given a biographical sketch of Robin, and the McKay family is provided the name and contact information for the student that receives the award.
