Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. What’s a local scholarship?
    1. So, McAllen ISD reaches out to businesses & organizations for scholarship donations. For example, Lopez Construction (fake business by the way) is offering 5 scholarships in the amount of $500 each for students who want to attend a four year university and major in engineering. So, I would go through the list of applicants (you all) and see who qualifies for the scholarship. Once I figure out who qualifies, I send out the information to the local company/organization and they select the winner!
  2. What’s Mr. Lopez’s email address?


  1. May I tweak an existing essay for the essay requirement?
    1. Of course! Just make sure you answer the question!
  2. When is the deadline?
    1. March 5th
  3. Can I submit a hard copy instead of an electronic submission?
    1. If you prefer a hard copy that’s fine, but electronic is always appreciated!
