All applicants must fill out the online application here. No other forms of the application will be accepted. The online application cannot be partially saved if incomplete. If you exit and fail to complete it, it requires you to start over when you return. To make your application time more efficient, we suggest that you have all of your information available when you begin.
For first time applicants, you must provide an informal letter to enable the foundation to become better acquainted with you as an individual. This should include insight into your reason for going to college, your expectations of your college education, and why you feel you are deserving of a scholarship from the McDonough Foundation. We suggest that you have this completed before starting your application, and copy-and-paste the document into the designated area.
1. Complete the application in full. This includes supplying a current e-mail address that you will continue to check regularly, as this is the method used by the Foundation to communicate.
2. If you are a High School senior, have your High School Principal or Guidance Counselor complete the Confidential School Report which can be found here.
