The Alex G. McKenna Economic and Policy Scholarship Award is a $16,000 scholarship (total) for four years of undergraduate study at Saint Vincent College ($4,000 per year). The scholarship is only offered to those students in pursuit of a major offered by the Alex G. McKenna School of Business, Economics, and Government. The scholarship is funded by a grant from the Philip M. McKenna Foundation, Inc. of Latrobe, Pennsylvania.
The Center for Political and Economic Thought strongly encourages you to submit your materials (essay, SAT/ACT scores, official high school transcript, and list of extracurricular activities) in person at our annual Scholarship Day. At Scholarship Day, Professor Nicholas Racculia, Instructor of Finance, will conduct a formal presentation for interested students and parents which will provide valuable information regarding the wide range of opportunities afforded by the Alex G. McKenna School at Saint Vincent College. However, if you are unable to be with us on Scholarship Day, you may also submit your essay in one of three ways:
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you do not attend Scholarship Day and choose to send your essay via electronic mail or via the online submission form, you must still mail a copy of your SAT/ACT scores, an official high school transcript, and a list of your extracurricular activities to the address outlined above. Failure to submit all of the necessary documents will void your eligibility and only material postmarked on or before Scholarship Day will be considered.
