Scholarship

Introduction and Mission Statement of the AAM Scholarship Program

AAM believes that education is essential to ensuring the success of our youths, so they can contribute to making the United States the exceptional country that it continues to be. Matching action to this belief, AAM conducts a number of programs aimed at supporting education, including its UBUNTU Mentoring Program, and its annual Graduates Appreciation Night , held every year near the end of May to celebrate its graduates, from high school to college to Ph.D.

AAM’s Scholarship Program is another important part of its educational effort. The Scholarship Program provides annual scholarship awards to qualified graduating high school seniors who are going on to college, who have been involved in constructive ways in their communities, and who demonstrate financial need. The Program is administered by AAM’s Scholarship Committee, which raises money for the Scholarship Fund, and gives the money out in the form of scholarships to selected applicants every year.

The Sholarship Fund

AAM Scholarships are funded from two sources: from sales of AAM’s calendar , which is produced every year by the Scholarship Committee, and from donations to the Scholarship Fund by generous individuals and organizations who share our belief in the importance of education.
