MTA proudly offers scholarship opportunities exclusive to its members. Encouraging and supporting the pursuit of secondary education is one way we demonstrate our commitment to the communities we serve. We believe the opportunities of tomorrow stem from the innovations of today. Holding to our mission, focusing on growing local economies and believing in being part of something bigger, MTA understands that future success depends on our members. Education is fundamental to that success and MTA is honored to extend these scholarship opportunities.
The MTA Foundation scholarship period will begin January 10, 2022, and end March 23, 2022.
With a variety of scholarships, the MTA Foundation rewards students who demonstrate exceptional talent and achievement. We award scholarships to support students through an education focused on honing their technological, business, and entrepreneurial skills.
Technology, business, and entrepreneurship studies are beneficial for many students, but education includes more than these three areas. As another way to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to the communities it serves, the MTA Foundation also awards scholarships to encourage and support the pursuit of post-secondary education, including vocational education, ensuring students have the opportunity to succeed, no matter their background or interests.
The 2022 FRS scholarship period is now open! The application period ends February 25, 2022.
The Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) annually awards scholarships to an exceptional group of rural students for their first year of college or vocational school.

Since its inception, FRS has awarded over $1 million in scholarships, empowering rural students throughout the country to advance their communities with invaluable skill sets and experiences.
The ATA scholarship period is closed for 2021. Please check back in January 2022 for next year's scholarships.
