Apply for MGA Foundation Scholarship – July 15 Deadline

The MGA Foundation is accepting scholarship applications until midnight on July 15.   Scholarships will be awarded for the Fall 2021 – Spring 2022 academic year.

The online application may be found here: https://mga.academicworks.com and additional information may be found in our scholarship FAQs. A single application is all that is required to apply for any scholarship administered by the MGA Foundation.  You do not need to apply to individual scholarships. 

ALREADY SUBMITTED AN APPLICATION? Any student who has already completed an application does not need to resubmit an application.  Those applications will remain in the system and considered for this upcoming round of awards. 

NEW TO THE PORTAL?  If you are new to the application process, you will need to first create an account.   Click on the ‘Sign Up’ button on the top right-hand side of the page and create your account using your mga.edu email address and a password that you create (it is not your email password).  After you create the account, you will receive a confirmation email to confirm your identity. Please make sure to check your spam folder for this email. Once you have confirmed your account, you can begin the scholarship application process.   

TO SUBMIT A GREAT APPLICATION: Read and answer each question truthfully on the application.  The best way to make your application stand out is to submit an excellent essay.   When completing the essay portion of the application, it is very important to respond to each aspect of the essay prompt.  Essays are evaluated on grammar, complete response to all aspects of the prompt and the quality of the essay.  Your application will automatically be filtered against all available scholarships for which you qualify.  Because the application also uses information from SWORDS, it is also very important that you update and maintain your personal information in SWORDS.

If you are awarded a scholarship you will be notified by email, so please monitor your MGA email account closely. You are required to accept your award and complete a short questionnaire before the scholarship can be awarded and credited to your MGA account.
