Nonprofit Grants & Scholarships
for Martial Arts Programs & Instructor Support
The American Martial Arts Alliance Foundation was established on December 16th, 2019 for the growth and development of the martial arts through education and brand awareness. The martial arts and its principles date back over 50 years in the United States alone. With tens of millions of individuals practicing martial arts techniques and life principles. The American Martial Arts Alliance Foundation is committed to the future growth of the martial arts by building an educational scholarship foundation and grants program that will provide support for nonprofit martial arts. This support will be in the form of financial technical educational grants and scholarships.
Funding for the American Martial Arts Alliance Federation Grant and Scholarship Program comes through our membership and sales revenue of the Martial Arts Masters and Pioneers Biography book. We are also looking at other grant and scholarship resources.
On June 27th, 2020 the American Martial Arts Alliance Foundation presented its first scholarship check to the United Martial Arts Fighting Federation, an Organization formed by Grandmaster Chuck Norris to support the Kick-Start Martial Arts Program.
