Education & Scholarship

Introduction and Mission Statement of the AAM Education & Scholarship Program

AAM believes that education is essential to ensuring the success of our youths so they can contribute to making the United States the exceptional country that it is. Matching action to this belief, AAM conducts a number of programs aimed at supporting education, including its UBUNTU Mentoring Program, and its annual Graduates Appreciation Night, held every year near the end of May to celebrate its graduates, from high school to college to Ph.D.

AAM’s Scholarship Program is another important part of its educational effort. The Scholarship Program provides annual scholarship awards to qualified graduating high school seniors who are pursuing college education, who have been involved in constructive ways in the growth of their communities, and who demonstrate financial need. The Program is administered by AAM’s Education & Scholarship Committee, which raises money for the Scholarship Fund, and award the scholarships to selected applicants every year.

The Scholarship Fund

AAM Scholarships are funded from two sources: from sales of AAM’s calendar , which is produced every year by the Scholarship Committee, and from donations to the Scholarship Fund by generous individuals and organizations who share our belief in the importance of education.

We invite you to partner with us through our Scholarship Program by making a contribution to the Scholarship Fund. Your contribution will be used in its entirety to provide some level of encouragement and support to young scholars who may need our assistance. Your contribution is tax-deducible.

To contribute, please either:

  1. Contribute by check: make your check payable to “The African Association Scholarship Fund” and mail it to P. O. Box 1016, Madison, WI 53701.
  2. Contribute online:
