Mississippi Automotive Manufacturers Association offers scholarships

The Madison County Business League & Foundation congratulates our member, Mississippi Automotive Manufacturers Association (MAMA), for recognizing the importance of workforce development by offering scholarships to worthy community college recipients!

MAMA-Growing a strong automotive workforce is essential to the health of the automotive industry in our state. Providing support and opportunity is one way MAMA and its members can secure its future workforce. Since 2006, the Mississippi Automotive Manufacturers Association has awarded $143,000 in scholarships to students studying automotive-related fields at Mississippi’s community colleges and universities.

In 2014, the Miss. Automotive Manufacturers Association provided funds to the Miss. Automotive Manufacturers Educational Foundation. The Foundation was established to grow the opportunities for raising more funds for scholarships. The Foundation, due to an increase in fundraising proceeds from MAMA, increase the scholarship program to three additional community colleges in northeast Mississippi, making the total amount awarded $27,000 this year.

Current partner schools are East Central Community College, East Mississippi Community College, Hinds Community College, Holmes Community College,Itawamba Community College, and Northeast Community College.
