Maine Seacoast Mission 2020 Scholarship Applications Now Available Online
BAR HARBOR, ME — Maine Seacoast Mission’s Scholarship Program 2020 Application and Re-Application are available now for downloading online. The deadline postmark for applying for a Mission scholarship is May 1, 2020.
Through its Scholarship Program, the Mission helps recent high school graduates and adults, from Maine’s offshore islands and Downeast communities, continue their educations and achieve their dreams.
Since 1918, the Mission has awarded almost $3 million to 3,692 deserving students. Each year the Mission awards approximately 30 new scholarships based on student financial needs and academic promise. Scholarships can be renewed each year of a multi-year program, resulting in nearly 100 Mission scholarships in any given year.
Mission President John Zavodny said, “As the first member of my family to complete college, I am a big believer in the transformational power of education. Whether through college, online learning, technical schools, bridge programs, apprenticeships — the many effective ways for students of all ages to now continue their education are incredibly important. The Mission is grateful to have helped so many people reach their education goals over the last century and we are committed to continuing our support for many generations to come.”
In 2019 the Mission renewed 60 scholarships totaling $106,500, and awarded 28 new scholarships totaling $59,000.
“Act now to apply for one of the Mission’s amazing scholarships,” said Scholarships Program Director Terri Rodick. “We offer financial help and emotional support too. Don’t wait until it’s too late.”
Applications and Re-Applications are available here. Please send any questions to Scholarship Director Terri Rodick at [email protected].
