Mitchell Scholarship

Scholarship Sponsored by Mitchell Institute

Value: $10,000
Awards Available: 130
Deadline : Apr 01, 2023

The Mitchell Institute unlocks the potential of Maine college students so they can contribute to the vitality of their communities. We award scholarships each year to graduating students from Maine's public high schools as they pursue higher education.

The 2021 recipients of the Mitchell Scholarship, representing more than 130 high schools from every community in Maine, each will receive a scholarship award for $10,000 to be paid in four equal installments of $2,500. In an effort to help more Maine students attain higher education, the Mitchell Institute provides scholarships for Maine students planning to attend two- and four-year degree programs at colleges both in- and out-of-state.

Once Scholars are selected, the Mitchell Institute helps them navigate college and the world beyond through personal and professional supports. In addition to offering the financial support of the scholarship, the Mitchell Institute offers a wide array of personal, academic and professional support programs, as well as a network of more than 3,000 Mitchell Scholars, Alumni, and partners-all of which amounts to much more than a check.

Resources and programs for Mitchell Scholars include:

A) Leadership and career development events

B) Access to a wide array of professional networks and social events

C) Customized career advising and personal support through individual meetings with Mitchell Institute staff and community members

D) Fellowship Awards of up to $1,500 to support internships and personal/professional growth opportunities

E) Emergency financial assistance for unexpected financial challenges.

Eligibility and Criteria for Selection

To be eligible for consideration, an applicant must be a legal resident of Maine and graduating from a public high school in Maine. Students who attend a public school in Maine but come from households with residency outside of Maine are not eligible to apply for the Mitchell Scholarship. Applicants should plan to attend a two-year or four-year degree program at an accredited college or university in the fall semester immediately following their high school graduation. Students pursuing a two-year degree are eligible for up to four years of scholarship support if they continue their education beyond the initial two years. Candidates are evaluated based on the following criteria: academic potential, community impact, and financial need.
