MACU Scholarships

College is expensive, and it can be overwhelming trying to pay for it. That’s why we developed our MACU scholarship program.


  • The Leona Bruno Scholarship, named for MACU's first manager, provides a high school senior with $1,000 for college. The winner is chosen based on scholastic achievement, integrity, service to their school, and service to their community.
  • The Gail Walker Memorial Scholarship, named for a long-serving board member, awards $1,000 to a high school senior who has demonstrated service to the community, job experience, and a GPA between 2.5 and 3.5.

The deadline to apply is February 26.
