Since 1998 the association has awarded approximately $160,00 to 76 students from the Greater Tuckahoe Area. On July 8, the 18th group of local students received their awards.

Greater Tuckahoe Area Merchants’ Association Scholarship programs

The Greater Tuckahoe Area Merchants’ Association (G.T.A.M.A.) is offering educational scholarships to full-time students who reside within the geographic boundaries of the Association and meet certain eligibility requirements.

Since 1998 the association has awarded approximately $160,000 to students from the Greater Tuckahoe Area.

As in the past, the Association is accepting applications from high school seniors for the James and Martha Owens and the Alex and Virginia May Scholarships.

A scholarship program is in its seventh year and is known as the Doris C. Stowell Scholarship.  One high school senior that meets special criteria established by Mrs. Stowell will be selected as a recipient. The Doris C. Stowell Scholarship is an amount to be determined over $3000.

This year the number of scholarships for the James and Martha Owens will be determined by the number of applicants and the amount of the scholarships will be set later but will be a minimum of $250.

The Alex and Virginia May Scholarship is up to $1000 and is for students  who will attend or are attending a community college and who has been active in the events of the G.T.A.M.A.

The Owens and May scholarships for the high school seniors will be awarded after successfully completing the first college semester and providing the scholarship committee a copy of their transcript.

The G.T.A.M.A. Scholarships for those full-time students already in college have the same geographic boundaries and must maintain at least a “B” GPA.  Post-Secondary recipients may reapply and receive a scholarship up to three times (a total of four years). .
