Abigail Adams once said that “learning is not attained by chance; it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.”
In order to encourage low-income students to continue their education after high school, the Maine Catalyst Scholarship is providing scholarships to high school seniors or undergraduate students in Maine who are seeking higher education. Preference will be given to students from western and rural Maine and/or students majoring in the STEM field.
To apply, write about your goals for the future and how higher education will enable you to reach them.
What are your goals for your future, and why is pursuing a higher education important to you?
The application deadline is Jun 5, 2022. Winners will be announced on Jul 1, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jul 1, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
