Hey Readers, it’s Mya.
While there’s always a lot of exciting things we’re planning here at the Foundation, we wanted to share one specific one with you today: Our Straight A Scholarship!
What is Straight “A”?
Here at AMF we attach a new meaning to the term “Straight As.” This scholarship awards high school students who are pursuing Academic excellence, Athletic Achievement, is Actively serving in the community while possessing a strong Ambition, a winning Attitude and the ability to overcome Adversity.
How do I become an #AMFScholar?
This scholarship is interesting because students don’t apply. So you’re probably asking, “If I can’t apply, how can I be a part of this opportunity?” Great question, reader! A potential candidate must be nominated by a teacher, administrator, coach, community member, etc. for the Straight “A” Scholarship to be considered.
Who can be Nominated?
Something really cool about this AMF program is that any high schooler in our Area of Impact can be nominated and recognized as an #AMFScholar. However, only seniors are eligible to receive scholarship money toward their college education. The link to nominate can be found here.
What Happens if I’m Chosen as a Finalist?
Each of our finalists will be invited to the Straight A Luncheon at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse, where they will receive a $2,000 scholarship. One overall male and one overall female Straight “A” Student of the Year will be chosen and awarded an additional $3,000 for a total of a $5,000 scholarship.
How Much Time do I Have Left?
The nomination deadline for Straight “A” is February 28th, 2020. With that being said, don’t hesitate to nominate your deserving students ASAP! There is less than a month left until the deadline and we want to make sure as many students are aware of this opportunity as possible.
How Long does this Process Take?
This very quick process takes 5-10 minutes to complete and we ask for information about students based on our AMF Straight “A”s.
5 Years of AMF Scholars
We look forward to seeing you/your students’ names added to the list of #AMFScholars! This scholarship is a great opportunity to help local Tri-State students achieve their dreams and we could not be more thrilled to be a part of this journey. Still have questions?
