Statement of Understanding

If a scholarship is awarded, the recipient is asked to accept it by signing a Statement of Understanding with respect to reporting grades to the Scholarship Committee and other matters. The intent of the statement is to remind the scholar of his obligation to report all grades and any change in his academic standing, as well as to waive any privacy law or policy applicable to the reporting institution. So, at the very beginning of your post-secondary education, it is appropriate to communicate this to your school and to set up a method that assures fulfillment of this reporting requirement.

The form is in PDF format (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader, free download). You may fill in the form on your screen. You can use the tab key to move from field to field. You cannot save the form on the internet; you must print it out and sign it. If you would rather, you can print out the blank form and fill it in by typing or printing neatly. Please mail the completed, signed form to:

John McKee Scholarship Committee
c/o Robert J. Stern, Executive Secretary
P.O. Box 144
Merion Station, PA 19066

Keep a copy for yourself, at least until you graduate and have made a final grade report to the Committee.
