Scholarship from The Margaret McNamara Memorial Fund

The MMMF was established in 1981 to honor the late Margaret McNamara and her commitment to the wellbeing of women and children in developing countries. The purpose of the grant is to support the education of women from developing countries who are committed to improving the lives of women and children in their home countries. Previous grant recipients studied agriculture, architecture, urban planning, civil engineering, education, forestry, journalism, nursing, nutrition, pediatrics, public administration, public health, social sciences, and social work.
Please also note that grant funds that are used for expenses that are not required for enrollment (e.g. room, board, travel, research, child care, etc.) are generally subject to US/Canada tax and income tax withholding, even for non-US/Canada nationals. Only tuition and related expenses (e.g., tuition, required fees, books, supplies, etc.) are exempt from US/Canada tax and withholding. The tax treatment of grant funds may be affected, by the terms of a tax treaty between the recipient’s home country and the United States/Canada. For your specific tax responsibility, contact your advisor or your institution’s financial office.
MMMF grant payments will be disbursed directly to the recipient’s institution around June 1. Grant funds may not be used to repay debts or loans.
