Scholarships

The Boosters annually award one-time, $1,000 scholarships to graduating, college-bound senior student-athletes at the spring sports banquet.

Scholarships are paid directly to the accredited college or university the student is enrolled at, prior to their freshman year. Currently there are six annual Boosters scholarships:

  • Two Jack Gambill Scholarships are awarded, one each to a male and female senior athlete who participated in sports for four years and demonstrated leadership qualities. the scholarships are one-time awards of $1,000 each. Jack Gambill was for many years the GMHS athletic director and the football and baseball coach. One of his teams won a state championship team in baseball. The GMHS sports field complex is named in his honor.
  • Two Arnold Siegfried Memorial Scholarships are awarded, one each to a male and female senior athlete who has attained a GPA of 3.25 and displayed good athletic ability. The scholarships are one-time awards of $1,000 each. Arnold Siegfried was the Director of Athletics at GMHS from 1970-1985 and for several years was boys varsity basketball coach.
  • Two Al Krueger Scholarships are awarded, one each to a male and female senior athlete in an individual performance sport (golf, cross country, swimming, wrestling, tennis, or track and field) who exhibited outstanding athletic achievement. The scholarship is a one-time award of $1,000. Al Krueger taught at GMHS from 1970 to 1998 and was the boys varsity tennis coach for many years. His teams won seven state championships.

JUDY LUBNOW MUSTANG SPIRIT AND SERVICE SCHOLARSHIP

In 2013, our community lost a truly genuine, caring, compassionate leader and supporter of George Mason, the athletic program, and the entire community.  In her honor, and with the generous support of her family, the George Mason Athletic Boosters are so very proud to offer a scholarship in the name of Mrs. Judy Lubnow. This award is separate and distinct from the other GMABA scholarships, and its criteria speak to who Judy was, and how much she meant to all of us in the community.
The Judy Lubnow Mustang Spirit and Service Scholarship is a four-year, renewable, $1000 award and will be given to a graduating senior who:
  • Demonstrates those qualities so evident in the daily work of Judy Lubnow (generosity, caring, active community involvement in the support of others, and a passion for Mason athletics).
  • Is an active participant or supporter of the school athletic program (player, manager, student trainer, etc.), and who demonstrates exceptional support of the programs and the athletes involved in them.
  • Is a positive representative of GM in all roles that they have in the athletic program.  Has demonstrated personal commitment, determination, optimism, leadership by example, and commitment to helping others.
  • Participates in service projects, organizations, and actions that strengthen the community and school spirit.
  • Brings people together, through their own actions, to make GM and Falls Church City a better, more welcoming, inclusive, united, and supportive community.
  • Is nominated by anyone in the community along with school officials.
