INSTRUCTIONS FOR SCHOLARSHIP APPLICANTS:  



Mission of the MSSA Scholarship Foundation
The mission of the MSSA Scholarship Foundation is to provide financial aid to undergraduate college students who show extraordinary promise of contributing to the marine environment the Chesapeake Bay, its tributaries, and the coastal waters of the mid-Atlantic seaboard.   The goal is to grow a cadre of accomplished professionals who can make a positive impact on the marine ecology.
Eligibility
For High School Seniors graduating in 2018:  Any resident of Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, or Washington, D.C. is eligible to apply for a scholarship.  Applicants must intend to be a full-time student during academic year 2018-2019 enrolled in any accredited institution of higher learning in the United States.
For college/university students currently enrolled in a full-time course of study in a relevant major:  Applicants, including students now receiving financial aid from the MSSA Scholarship Foundation, may be at any grade level from college freshman to junior and intend to be a full-time student in the next academic year.  The award may be used to study in any accredited institution of higher learning in the United States.
 Major Fields of Study
The Board of Directors recognizes that a college education involves knowledge of a broad range of fields, including history and literature as well as science and mathematics.  It also involves the acquisition of a range of skills such as critical thinking, written and oral communication, problem solving, teamwork, and integration and application of knowledge.  Study in-depth in some specialized area is also a critical part of an effective education.  While some major fields of study are directly related to efforts to improve the marine environment, such as marine biology or environmental studies, the relevance of other disciplines must be demonstrated by the student in his/her personal essay.
Length and Amount of Award
The award is for the academic 2018-19 school year.  The amount of the award varies according the Foundation’s fund balance and is set annually by the Board of Directors.  In recent years, awards have been made ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.  The Board has stated a preference for making larger awards to a small number of students so that the scholarships cover a larger portion of college costs rather than small awards to a large number of individuals.  A recipient may apply for another scholarship in succeeding years, so long as they make acceptable progress toward their degree and maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average (GPA) based on a 4.0 scale.
Criteria for Determining an Award and Its Size
This scholarship is based on merit, not financial need, as the Board of Directors intend to support outstanding students who are expected to make a significant impact on the marine environment.  Those individuals who are judged more meritorious may receive a larger award than others.  Several criteria will be used in reviewing the applications.
  • Academic excellence
  • Involvement and leadership in areas beyond the curriculum
  • Commitment to improve the waters, fisheries, and marine environment
  • Potential to make a positive impact on the ecology during a future career
 Procedure
All Applicants must submit a complete 2018 MSSA Scholarship Foundation Application.  All High School Seniors must submit an official transcript of academic work and a personal essay between 300-600 words that includes your educational goals, post-baccalaureate intentions, career ambitions, and an explanation about how your education will help you to enhance the environment of the Chesapeake Bay watershed and coastal waters of the mid-Atlantic.    All college/university students must submit official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended and an essay between 300-600 words similar to that required of High School Seniors. The deadline for postmark is 5:00 p.m. Friday, April 13, 2018 The Board of Directors will review the applications, and decisions are expected to be made and announced to successful applicants on or before June 1, 2018.
Payments
Recipients will receive a check made out jointly to themselves and the institution of higher learning in which they enroll to be applied toward school expenses.
Other Benefits
Scholarship recipients will receive a one-year membership in MSSA, which will entitle them to receive the quarterly Tidelines, electronic messages, and other communication with members.  In addition, recipients will be encouraged to attend MSSA Chapter meetings at a location convenient to them and to make brief remarks about their educational and career plans and about how the scholarship is helping them to achieve their goals.
Commitments of Recipients
The primary expectation for each recipient is that she/he acquire the best education possible.  Also, each recipient will be required to make a brief report, approximately one page, on the highlights of their academic year.  Details regarding the submission of this report will be provided to the winners of scholarships in 2018.
