Massachusetts Maritime Academy - Scholarships Admissions - Scholarships
MMA offers a number of scholarships to qualified students through the admission office. Once a student has applied for admission, they are automatically considered for one of our scholarships, there is no extra paperwork to complete.

Two awards offered through the State of Massachusetts for incoming students are the Paul E. Tsongas and John and Abigail Adams Scholarships.

The Paul Tsongas Scholarship Program seeks to recognize achievement and reward Massachusetts students who have graduated from high school within three years with a grade point average (G.P.A.) of 3.75 and a Scholastic Aptitude Test (S.A.T.) score of at least 1200 (or the American College Testing [A.C.T.] equivalent) and who also meet the one year residency requirement for tuition classification at the State Colleges. Eligible students receive a waiver of tuition and mandatory fees at a Massachusetts State College. To learn more, follow this link or you can also contact the Massachusetts Office of Student Financial Assistance at (617) 727-9420 to obtain more information.

Note:
The award guidelines indicate that each state college may provide five new Paul Tsongas Scholarship Program Tuition Waivers per academic year.

The John and Abigail Adams Scholarship awards non-need-based state-supported undergraduate tuition waivers to students who are awarded John and Abigail Adams Scholarship by the Department of Education. The purposes of the Adams Scholarship are to: 

  • Reward and inspire student achievement;
  • Help attract more high-performing students to Massachusetts public higher education; and
  • Provide families of college-bound students with financial assistance.
