PURPOSE AAMA’s Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship Fund is to provide financial assistance to individuals enrolled in
undergraduate study in community colleges, trade schools and universities. The Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship
Fund principally targets two and four year academic programs; however, certificate/licensing programs are also
eligible.
FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE is based on financial need, academic performance and leadership potential.
SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS
For the 2015 – 2016 school year AAMA will award at least two scholarships of up to $2,000.00 each on the basis of a
comprehensive process. Areas that are reviewed by the committee include, but are not limited to the following:
Academic Accomplishments, Community Service, Recommendations, Personal Essay and Financial Need.
Tomorrow’s Leaders pays scholarship funds directly to the recipient’s school. The annual Scholarship awards are split
into two equal parts and are disbursed on a semester basis; they may be continued for the following semester if the
student maintains a 2.0 GPA for the preceding semester. The Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarships are awarded without
regard to race, color, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. Scholarships awarded are based upon the availability of
funds and additional qualifying criteria. Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship Fund programs include volunteer hours to
