Since 2001, AAMA has offered a scholarship program for children of member company employees, providing students an opportunity for financial assistance for higher education and encouraging growth in the industry through the pursuit of an engineering or technical degree.
In 2003, AAMA added a Scholarship Partner Program in which member companies, such as Milgard, set up their own scholarship program specifically for children of their employees. AAMA manages the program administration, application process and winner selection.
