Scholarship Programs and Information

Our 2014 scholarship deadlines have passed. Please check back in January 2015 to see scholarship opportunities for the 2015-2016 academic year.

About Scholarships

The Maine Community Foundation established its first scholarship fund in 1984. Now, through the generosity of individuals, community organizations, and businesses that believe in the importance of education, the community foundation awards more than $2 million each year from more than 450 scholarship funds.

Maine Community Foundation scholarships provide financial assistance for Maine residents attending accredited colleges, universities, or technical schools. The funds also support students attending private high schools, camps, and experiential learning programs.

Each scholarship has its own eligibility requirements and review process. Many scholarships are limited to residents of specific counties or graduates of specific high schools. Our directory of scholarships is arranged by type (post-secondary, graduate school, aspirational/non-traditional, and private high school) and by geographic region. Be sure to review all listings that may apply to you and your goals. If you are an adult returning to school, please see our Adult Learner section for funds specifically aimed at supporting you.

The Story Behind the Scholarship

Ever wonder what inspires people to set up scholarship funds? The reasons vary from person to person, and we plan to feature some of their stories.

The first of our Story Behind the Scholarship articles features Mount Desert Island artist, inventor, and philanthropist Les Menard.
