NGAMA Scholarship Programs

About the NGAMA Scholarship Program

The National Guard Association of Massachusetts has been awarding scholarships to members of the Massachusetts National Guard, their spouses and children for over 30 years. Money is awarded directly to the student to assist with the increasing costs of books and fees that are often not included in other scholarship awards.

This year, the Association is offering two $1,000 awards.
