MASBA 2020 Scholarship Program

You can imagine our excitement: We expanded our MASBA scholarship program from 10 recipients in 2017, to 20 recipients in 2018, to over 93 recipients in 2019! Now, are you ready for some really exciting news? On April 17, our MASBA Board discussed the future of our MASBA scholarship program and approved the following for 2020:
  • One MASBA scholarship will be awarded to all MASBA districts of less than 1,000 students.
  • Two MASBA scholarships will be awarded to all MASBA ESCs and to all MASBA districts of 1,000 to 10,000 students.
  • Three MASBA scholarships will be awarded to MASBA districts with more than 10,000 students.
In this way, MASBA will award more than 215 scholarships to graduating seniors throughout Texas in 2020!
