MASMS 2017 Scholarship Applications
The MASMS Scholarship Committee is accepting essays from sons and daughters of all MASMS dues paying members and life members who are graduating seniors and any eligible post-secondary student accepted into any post secondary school in the United States.
Since 1993, MASMS has offered educational scholarships to high school students who are graduating seniors, and any eligible post-secondary students accepted into any post-secondary school in the United States. These are sons and daughters of all dues paying MASMS members and Life members. Student applicants are asked to submit essays focusing on their participation in school and community activities during high school or in post secondary education. This includes involvement in areas such as student government, music, sports and volunteer work for church and other community projects.
To provide recognition for such generous donations, the Scholarship Committee has started a four level certificate program, with each level indication dollar amounts donated. The levels are: Bronze-$250: Silver-$500: Gold-$750: Platinum-$1000. Members contributing at these levels will be presented with framed certificates at the fall State Convention. A plaque would accompany the certificate for Platinum level contributors.

In 2008, the MASMS Executive Board created a unique scholarship honoring the exemplary leadership of Jim Fredricks, the former Director of Facilities at the College of St. Benedict. Jim was instrumental in the formation of the MASMS Chapter Structure, and served as Chapter President, State President, Treasurer, and NSPMA (National) President.
During his professional career, Jim worked hard to improve not only his skills, but also those of members throughout the organization. He believed strongly in education and professional growth of all MASMS members, creating the first educational and certification committee. He led this committee since its inception, committed to raising the bar of each individual as well as the organization.
This newly established annual $1000 scholarship will be awarded to MASMS members that emulate the same commitment to professional growth and leadership, and are looking to advance themselves in their profession. The applicants will be reviewed by the scholarship committee to determine those best suited for this award.
