Student Scholarships

MSRW offers Mackinaw Raptor Fest scholarships to up to four qualified applicants.  In 2018, Student Scholars were Kelsey Becraft from Petoskey and Maeve Klein from Hastings.  Support the Student Scholarship fund to help a student attend the Mackinaw Raptor Fest for free. Businesses giving $300 or more to fund a full scholarship will receive Fest Sponsorship benefits.   Unused donations will launch a designated Scholarship Fund for future years.  No donor may specify a particular recipient.  Please note if you prefer your gift to remain anonymous.  2283dar@gmail.com.
