For over 100 years, Massachusetts Maritime Academy has been preparing women and men for exciting and rewarding careers on land and sea. As the nation's finest co-ed maritime college, MMA challenges students to succeed by balancing a unique regimented lifestyle with a typical four-year college environment. As a member of the cadet corps you will live, study, sail, work and play in an atmosphere that encourages you to be your best.
Lady Buc Scholarship
MMA celebrates the legacy of women on campus!
Nearly forty years ago, five brave women did something that had never been done before; they graduated from Massachusetts Maritime Academy. These strong women blazed a trail for the hundreds that would follow in their footsteps (and continue to) and their efforts changed not only Academy culture but the maritime industry. Women from all walks of life have been afforded tremendous opportunity (both personally and professionally) because of the profound act taken by five bold women.
The Lady Buc Scholarship will benefit dynamic young women - in good regimental standing - attending MMA who demonstrate financial need. The Scholarship will support a female student each year, in perpetuity (maybe more depending on what we raise).
So how do we do this? We raise $25,000.
Thank you in part to the MMA Athletics Department, we have raised over $19,000 from proceeds of the Women’s Athletics Golf Tournament and other generous gifts from parents, friends, alumni, faculyt, and staff. The faster we get to $25,000, the faster we can start helping a young lady in need. Save the date for next year, May 17 at The Brookside Golf Club) to help support!
Donate! Choose the Lady Bucs Scholarship from the drop down menu under Gift Designation. Once you've made your gift, spread the word using social media via our Givalanche which pops up once you've make your gift!
Consider making a recurring gift. It allows you to donate an monthly amount that can ultimately amount to more than you might be able to give with a one-time gift. For example a gift of $50 per month would total $600 a year or $100 per month is $1,200 a year (and you'd qualify for the Admiral's Circle).
