MOA Scholarships

Because the Chicago Public School student-athletes have given so much to us as an association, we would like to give back to you.  We are a small, but integral part of the education of Chicago Public School student-athletes. To date we have awarded over $40,000.00 dollars in scholarships.  With that in mind, the MOA has established the MOA Scholarship Fund for the fourteenth year.   The MOA has established the following criteria for applicants.
