Approved candidates must successfully complete their first semester of study with a GPA of 2.0 or better in order to receive the $2,500 award. The MAA’s scholarship is named for Gordon King, an enthusiastic, well-loved, and now retired professor of arboriculture who taught at UMass for over 25 years – and his late wife, Frances, whose care and support of her husband’s arboriculture students earned her the endearing nickname of “Ma” King.
