Building a better tomorrow through education.


The scholarship program encourages educational success in the fields related to the sports flooring business. We appreciate and understand that it takes many trained professionals to make our industry run. The process of turning trees into high-end sports surfaces encompasses numerous skilled hands. And once the sports floors are installed, even more trained professionals use the floors in their careers.  We want to support all levels of this process in their educational and career goals.

MFMA offers five annual scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each for secondary, advanced or trade school education. Applicants are considered based on academic, field of study and written essay responses. Applications will be reviewed by the MFMA SportsFloor Contractor Advisory Council and are approved by the MFMA Board of Directors.
