2020 MTA Grant Recipients

Major Grants

Launched in 2020, the MTA Foundation’s Major Grant program is robust and impactful. With a goal of being 100% mission-specific in its giving, the program has started off with a bang! So far, we have given to two incredibly diverse projects. Click on the links below to learn more about each and to view their presentations to the MTA Foundation Board:




Palmer Museum of History and Art

Matanuska Valley Historical Photo Project "Our work inspires, enriches, and cultivates our community's connection to the unique history, culture, and art of the Greater Palmer Area."

UAA College of Engineering

The UAA Summer Engineering Academies are a series of fun, hands-on, and engineering-themed summer camps for middle school and high school students. This summer, the Academies have moved completely online, with week-long camps focused on coding, 3D modeling, and videography. This is a great way to flex those learning muscles over the summer and increase interest in science, technology, engineering, and math.
