Awards

OVERVIEW OF THE AWARDS:

The Trustees have designated two different categories of awards:

(1) Graduating High School Seniors who will attend a 4-year college

(2) Graduating High School Seniors who will attend a Maine Community College

In all categories the awards will be major in nature, not to exceed $10,000. The award for Community College students will not exceed $2,000.

The Trustees may grant the awards in all categories to recipients who meet multi-faceted and diverse criteria, as opposed to any single criteria such as financial need or scholastic achievement.

Each year the Trustees will determine the number of scholarships to be awarded. Runner-up finalists will receive $500 in recognition of their outstanding achievement and/or cultural contribution. 

Awards will be limited to applicants who are residents of Maine for other than education purposes
