MCMA Scholarships 

Each year for more than a decade, the MCMA has been awarding scholarships to deserving students, both graduating high school seniors, and those already enrolled in institutions of higher education. Want to give back? Donate to the scholarship fund today.

The qualifications are that the student is an MCMA individual or corporate member, immediate family of an MCMA member, or employee of an MCMA sponsoring company (*see below) and that they submit the MCMA scholarship application. Prior winners are not eligible.

In 2020, the MCMA began awarding a scholarship for a candidate seeking to pursue a professional development (non-degree) opportunity related to our industry. 

The MCMA works to ensure that scholarship applicants are considered in a blinded fashion, thereby ensuring to the organization’s best ability, that no one on the scholarship committee, or involved in the review process, is aware during deliberations of a candidate’s identity or their relationship to current or former MCMA members or sponsors until after the scoring process is completed. This process ensures that each applicant is judged purely on the relative strength of their application and the quality of their responses.
