FAQ's

  • How is the MKF Scholarship activated?

    Posted by:

    The scholarship is set up directly with the financial department of the school the student will be attending.  No funds are paid directly to a student.  A student must be fully registered within 6 months of receiving the scholarship in order for it to be processed.  Tuition fees are then drawn from the scholarship account until the awarded funds are depleted.  Be sure to consult with the registration and financial departments of the school you will be attending for their specific requirements and guidelines.
