Eileen McCaughan Memorial Scholarship
The family and friends of Eileen McCaughan established the scholarship to honor the life of an outstanding teenager who was tragically killed by a drunk driver at just 15 years old. Eileen was a Key Biscayne teenager who excelled in school and in sports.
The scholarship was started by local residents in 1989. From 1989 to 2023, the Eileen McCaughan Memorial Scholarship has helped 260 students obtain higher education with a total of $560,250 awarded. Scholarships are awarded to students who are academically talented but financially needy and wish to pursue higher education.
An annual dinner is held every spring to raise money for the fund. Applications must be postmarked by March 31.
