MTA Foundation


To demonstrate its ongoing commitment to the community, the MTA Foundation awards a range of scholarships to support students through an education honing their technological, business, and entrepreneurial skills. Our 2020 scholarship application period is from January 15, 2020, to March 16, 2020. $75,000 in scholarships will be awarded in the following three categories:

  • Earl Lackey Scholarship
  • Academic Degree for Graduating Seniors
  • Academic Degree for Continuing Education
  • Trade & Tech Scholarship

The applicant must be an active member of MTA, or a dependent of an active MTA member, who resides in MTA’s service area. The applicant may be a graduating senior from a secondary school, or a student attending or planning to attend a college or vocational/trade school. Awards are for students who will attend an accredited college or vocational/trade school in the summer or fall of 2020, and be enrolled in a course of study that leads to a degree or certification.
