AMA Legacy Scholarships

The scholarship effort of the AMA Alumni Foundation is the mechanism by which our descendants can know of the life and times at AMA.  It is something that we can establish as a living legacy to our ancestors, a legacy for us and for those who will live beyond our time.

The AMA Alumni Foundation, Inc. has established scholarships to directly support post-secondary education for the direct descendants of former cadets of the Augusta Military Academy.  Scholarships vary in both number and amount from year to year, depending on the donations received and specified to be used for scholarships.  Over the past years, the number of scholarships awarded in a single year has varied from one to eight.  The amount of the scholarships has varied from $1,000 to $2,000 each.  The number and amount of scholarships are determined each year by the Trustees, depending on the dedicated donations received.
