Beginning in 2005, MAOTeen’s mission has been to provide scholarship opportunities for outstanding teens. Many of our participants have gone on to work in areas that are now known as “essential” careers (doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, fireman, EMT, police officer and more). The COVID-19 “Heroes Fund” aims to reward former state and national MAOTeen titleholders who are currently working on the front lines as a healthcare employee or first responder AND have current outstanding college loan debt. Your sacrifice has not gone unnoticed!!

In a recent interview with a young doctor, he was asked what could be done to assist him during this time. He quickly responded, “the best thing anyone could do for me is help pay my student loans!” As we all know, student loan debt is astronomical. We see our candidate’s tuition statements when they apply for their MAOTeen scholarships and almost all have student loans. If you fit the criteria, this opportunity is for you!

Click here to access the application. Five (5) $1000.00 scholarships will be awarded and paid directly to the student loan provider. Please read the instructions carefully and provide all required documentation. Deadline to receive application is May 15, 2020. The five (5) winners will be announced on May 20, 2020.

Thank you to all who have worked so hard during this difficult time in our nation’s history. You are all our HEROES!!
