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 achievement, a field of study, and written essay responses. Applications will be reviewed by the MFMA Sports Floor Contractor Advisory Council and are approved by the MFMA Board of Directors.

One reason I am so grateful to receive this funding is because it helps me to physically stay in school and focus on my studies, as well as help keep my household financially stable. The second reason I am grateful is because MFMA is passionately willing to invest in my success as I matriculate through college to become an architect who could one day partner with this association to create beautiful facilities that use maple flooring.
