Welcome to the Maine Community Foundation scholarship application.  The foundation assists more than a thousand students with over $2.5 million in scholarship aid annually.  

Our scholarships were established by individuals, businesses, and organizations wanting to help local students pursue their educational goals. Each individual scholarship is created with its own different criteria for application eligibility and selection. With such a wide variety of awards, there is probably going to be something just for you. For instructions on our online application, click here: 2019 New Applicant Instructions.  If you are renewing a scholarship, click here for instructions: 2019 Renewal Instructions. Parents - please do not establish an account for a student using your own email address. All usernames should be student email addresses.  All students should have just one account - high school students should avoid using their high school email address if they have an alternative.

New and renewal applications for the online scholarships that we manage can be accessed through this site. The Maine Community Foundation also holds hundreds of other scholarships that are managed by area high schools. After searching on this website, also visit our scholarships page or consult your guidance office or college advisor about further opportunities in your area.
