Approximately 40 percent of MMA cadets receive some level of tuition assistance, primarily in the form of partial scholarships. MMA offers partial scholarships based on the level of need. There are no scholarships for summer camp.
Your son’s application for admission must be submitted and an acceptance determination be made before financial aid and assistance is decided.
To apply for an MMA partial scholarship, simply contact Dr. John Butler at 956.421.9240 or butler@MMA-TX.org.
Current students interested in receiving a partial scholarship must submit an application to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. Applications must be completed by May 1 of the preceding school year. The MMA scholarship committee will determine awards based on family need and student merit. Merit considerations include a review of a student's academic, military and athletic performance.
Students of fallen service members or 100% disabled veterans may be eligible for a NewDay USA Foundation scholarship. The foundation currently awards student scholarships for up to $20,000 per year for up to four years.
