Alison Mae Regan  Memorial Fund


Ann Kirby & Heather O'Connell presenting the 2014 Milton High School AMRMF Scholarships.

The Alison Mae Regan Memorial Fund (AMRMF) was created in 2010 to help men and women primarily of the greater Milton area in need of financial aid to further their education. The principal focus of AMRMF is its Scholarships Program, through which it makes grants for undergraduate or graduate study at accredited colleges or universities, through our fundraising efforts. Scholarships may only be applied to study at an accredited institution based in the United States. AMRMF seeks candidates who are "motivated by values of character, scholastic achievement, and commitment to Family and Community", and works to foster fellowship among them.

AMRMF is a small, all-volunteer scholarship fund based in Milton, Massachusetts, which awards yearly scholarships and works to foster fellowship among grant recipients. Once a year, AMRMF accepts applications for grants, which include essays, transcripts and recommendations from School Administrators. From these written applications, AMRMF volunteers identify a group of finalists to be invited for a brief personal interview. On the basis of this interview, AMRMF typically selects new scholarship recipients each year.

Eligibility:    AMRMF scholarships are open to all in the greater Milton area regardless of sex, age, color, nationality or religious background. While AMRMF does not emphasize any particular form of religious practice or worship, it seeks to provide support to persons motivated by values of good character, high scholastic requirements, and a commitment to Family and Community. AMRMF will award grants to persons entering a wide range of careers and professions. However, preference will be given to those who can satisfy high scholastic requirements and are considering careers in education, music, and the arts. For more information, applicants should read with care the Mission Statement of AMRMF.

Location of Applicants:    As a rule, The Alison Mae Regan Fund does not award Scholarships EXCEPT to applicants whose current or permanent address is located in Milton, Massachusetts. It is probably counter-productive to submit an application if you live outside this area, unless clearly advertised otherwise by AMRMF, on the 'AMRMF Events' page of this Website. 

Size of grants:    AMRMF Grants are small (averaging $200 to $2,000) and are meant to be supplementary. Aid is given for the ensuing school year.

VERY IMPORTANT--BEFORE YOU CONSIDER APPLYING:   Please note that applicant interviews are scheduled on extremely short notice starting in March and are held in Milton, Ma, at an advertised location. AMRMF will not pay any transportation charges or other costs of applicants who are invited to be interviewed. No grant is awarded by AMRMF without a personal interview. However, submitting an application does not guarantee being invited for an interview, and being invited for an interview does not guarantee a scholarship.

Obtaining an application: Because of staff and time limitations, the AMRMF Scholarship Application Form is available online (AMRMF Forms). Because forms are revised each year, applicants are discouraged from copying forms that may be on file with financial aid offices, or have been saved from prior years. Please go to our AMRMF Forms page to copy/paste and/or print the updated form. The form includes requests for autobiographical essays, supporting transcripts and letters of recommendations.

Interviews: After the application forms are received, some candidates will be invited to an interview with the Awards Committee. AMRMF does not make grants to applicants who are not invited to be interviewed. Interviews are held starting in March of each year in Milton MA. Before entering the competition, each applicant should consider carefully whether he or she can arrange to be present for such an interview and must affirm on the application form his or her intention to be present for an interview, if invited.
AMRMF does NOT reimburse applicants' travel or other expenses incurred in the interview process.

Announcement date:    AMRMF Scholarship Awards are generally announced in June. Awards are presented at each school's Scholastic Awards Ceremony.

Alison Mae Regan


The Alison Mae Regan Memorial Fund was created to fulfill the  wishes of a beautiful and compassionate young  lady  who  loved  children, who  always  knew  she   would  become a teacher, but whose dream was tragically cut short. It is our hope that through the efforts of  Ali Mae's family,  friends,  students,  fellow  teachers,  and  the AMRMF community, we shall fulfill that dream, and identify those students in need,  and offer them the opportunity to further their education and/or training. We cannot assist every child in need, but we can certainly work hard to identify and make it a little less difficult for a few.
