The MES Fund, Inc.

AMI/USA established the MES FUND, Inc., the first financial aid fund to benefit AMI teacher trainees, in honor of Margaret Elizabeth Stephenson, who devoted her life to AMI teacher training in the United States. The fund honors her legacy and extends her contribution to touch future teachers.

The now self-administered fund awards partial scholarships in the form of tuition reduction towards AMI training in the United States to selected students.
