The Maine State Society of Washington, D.C. Foundation established a scholarship program in 1990 to recognize Maine students attending Maine colleges and universities, and has awarded $232,500 in scholarship funds to 196 students since 1991. Each scholarship is in the amount of at least $1,000 -- including several awards over $2,000 -- and is awarded to full-time students who have completed at least one year of undergraduate courses at a four-year degree granting, non-profit institution of higher learning in the State of Maine. 

In 2019, the Foundation awarded 6 scholarships totaling $7,500. Click here for details on the awards and our recipients.
