The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders
is now accepting applications for the

Robin C. McKay
Memorial Scholarship

This is a $1900 award for the Senior year.  This is not a need-based
scholarship but, rather, is awarded to a well-rounded and academically proficient student studying in the fields of Speech-Language Pathology and/or Audiology.


                      To be eligible for the McKay Scholarship you must:

·      Be a CSD Major
·      Be a Junior (rising Senior)
·      Have a minimum GPA in the major of 3.25
·      Have completed CSD 200, 207, 208, 209, 300 & 301

                      To apply for the McKay Scholarship you must:

·      Submit a resume of past accomplishments/achievements
·      Write a brief personal statement as to future goals/aspirations
(no more than 1 page)


Materials must be turned in to the CSD departmental office by 5:00 PM April 11, 2018

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.
