At Made in America Movement (MAM), we believe in supporting and empowering students that are hungry to learn, enthusiastic and dedicated to improving themselves. By investing in students’ educations, we’re investing in bettering the communities they come from, and ultimately, bettering society. We live by the philosophy of building the people that build the organizations that change the world.
Unfortunately, all too often, even the brightest students lack the finances to attain an education – enter the Made in America Movement Scholarship. The program assists students with $2000 of direct financial aid, which can be used towards tuition, fees, books, and accommodation. The scholarship amount will be directly sent to the Financial Aid Office of the University.
The scholarship amount is $2000 and it will be awarded to one student for their education expenses.

How will applications be reviewed?
The Made in America Movement Scholarship team will evaluate applications based on originality, creativity, grammatical accuracy, and ability to inspire others. There is no formula breaking down the importance of each such criterion. Instead, each essay will be considered in its entirety.
Judges will be asking themselves the following questions:
- Does the essay present an original viewpoint or perspective?
- How well-written is the essay?
- Does the essay inspire the reader?
The winner will be contacted via e-mail and must respond within 5 days in order to accept the reward. If no response is received within that time frame, another winner will be selected to receive the award instead.
The winner will be confirmed ONLY after providing proof of enrollment in the form of a copy of a tuition bill, a picture of a current student ID, official or unofficial transcripts, or a letter of proof from the accredited college, university, or school at which the winner is enrolled. In the event a winner cannot prove enrollment at a college, university, or school, a secondary winner will be chosen.
