Lady Buc Scholarship Spotlight

Lady Buc Scholarship

MMA is celebrating more than 40 years of women on campus!

It’s been a little over forty years since five brave women decided to do something that had never been done before; they entered the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. These strong women blazed a trail for hundreds that would follow in their footsteps and their efforts have changed not only the Academy culture but the Maritime industry as we know it.

In this spirit we have decided to put together The Lady Buc Scholarship to benefit young woman at MMA so that more females can have the same opportunity and make a positive impact on their community and beyond. If you are looking for an area on campus to help, then what better way than encouraging young females at the Academy!

With the help of some recent grads –  Meghan Carter Duggan '99, Marisol Chalas '96, Megan Kelly Kefalis '96, Tricia Kelly Keegan '94, and Samantha Phaneuf Stewart '00 -  we have raised almost $8,000 to start, but still need to get to $25,000 to endow the scholarship. A special thanks to MMA Athletics as well who have donated a portion of the proceeds of the Womens Athletics Golf Tournament to start us off! This year’s golf tournament will take place on May 7, 2018.
