Our Scholarship Season is NOW OPEN for 2024!

Welcome to the Maine Community Foundation online scholarship application.  The foundation assists almost two thousand students with over $3 million in scholarship aid annually. The Maine Community Foundation also holds hundreds of other scholarships that are managed by area high schools.  After searching this website, also visit our scholarships page www.mainecf.org/scholarships or consult your guidance office of college financial advisor about further opportunities in your area.  

Maine Community Foundation seeks to promote respect for all people. Through its scholarships, the community foundation supports all students regardless of their race, age, ancestry or national origin, sexual orientation, gender, physical or mental disability, religion, or geographical region within the state of Maine.

The Maine Community Foundation’s approach is designed to reward students’ strengths and to affirm the positive aspects of their lives and work.

Maine Community Foundation encourages all students seeking post-secondary, graduate, or aspirational educational goals to apply for our scholarships, regardless of citizenship status. Our awards are based on many factors including academic performance, financial need, involvement in extracurricular activities, and work experience, and do not take into consideration an applicant's citizenship or immigration status.

All applicants must submit the required documents which may include applications, transcripts or grade reports, letters of recommendation, and the Student Aid Report from the FAFSA.  We will waive the FAFSA requirement for those students unable to submit a FAFSA because of visa or immigration status.
