What is the MATRA Scholarship Program? At our 2011 Annual Conference, the Board of Directors voted to start a Scholarship Program for our Members. In 2012 we began to solicit funds and build our Scholarship Program. The goal for 2012 was $7,500 and we surpassed that goal three fold. MATRA was able to raise over $21,000 for our first year. Again this year, MATRA is soliciting Scholarship Applications for TWO $2,500 Scholarships to be awarded to current MATRA Members and/or their family*.
Deadline to receive the 2017/2018 MATRA Scholarship applications and corresponding materials is Friday, April 3rd, 2017.
