    2021/22 McKay Scholarship Application School Selection Issue

    Some applicants may not see the correct list of schools in the 1st School Choice dropdown list on their McKay Scholarship application.

    McKay application menu error

    If you do not see the correct list of schools for your child's grade level, select one of the schools listed (even though this is not the school that you would like). After you have selected your reason for request, also select the Other checkbox reason and then type in the name of your 1st choice school.

    McKay application menu workaround

    The school that you type in the Other reason area will be used as your first choice on your McKay application. We are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
