Empowering Futures: MSPMA's Commitment to Education
MSPMA Scholarship Program: Open Doors to Higher Education for Aspiring Students
The Missouri School Plant Managers Association (MSPMA) proudly announces its 2024 Scholarship Program, dedicated to fostering the next generation of professionals by providing financial assistance to promising students. In our commitment to educational growth and professional development, we are offering several scholarships to support the ambitions of students from MSPMA member school districts.
This year, we are honored to present the Tony & Marie Sloan Scholarship, Hillyard’s Gary Petrie Scholarship, and two signature MSPMA Scholarships, each valued at $1,000. These scholarships are crafted to recognize academic dedication, leadership potential, and the drive to succeed in pursuing higher education—whether that be an Associate Degree, Bachelor’s Degree, or Vocational Certification.
Eligibility extends to graduating high school seniors within our member districts, with consideration also given to current college students, prioritizing those who are on the cusp of their graduation. Our MSPMA Scholarship Committee, through a rigorous and compassionate review process, will recommend outstanding candidates for these awards. Additional unnamed scholarships may also be distributed as deemed fit by the committee and ratified by the MSPMA Board.
To be considered for this remarkable opportunity, candidates must submit a complete Application Packet, showcasing their academic achievements, financial need, and community involvement. This packet should include:
•A fully filled Scholarship Application Form
•A Letter of Recommendation from an MSPMA member
•The most recent high school transcript
•A personal narrative that brings to life the applicant’s motivations and aspirations
•Two additional Letters of Recommendation from non-MSPMA members
•A statement of financial need as evidenced by the FAFSA
We encourage all eligible students to seize this chance to advance their educational journeys with the support of the MSPMA. Let us be a part of your success story as you embark on a path of learning and professional development.
