Since its inception in 1965, AMAE, through its chapters throughout the state, has supported our students with scholarships to help them continue their education. As educators, many of us coming from migrant backgrounds, recall our own quest for that degree and better life for our families. We hope our graduates persevere in their chosen goal and “Pay-it-Forward” to struggling youths in their community. Applications are made available through their counselor’s office. Congratulations to our graduates!!
Help us continue this legacy by making a secure donation through our “Donate” tab.
