  • Scholarship Description
  • Many scholarships for Maine high school seniors reward academic or athletic achievement. Few, however, focus on character development. Mainely Character makes character count. We reward exemplary individual behavior and make continuing education possible for deserving Maine students.

    Only half of Maine's high school graduates go on to post-secondary education. That is one of the lowest rates in the nation and it puts Maine's young people at a disadvantage. College costs often prevent Maine's high school seniors from choosing higher education. Mainely Character will help deserving Maine high school graduates realize their dreams and give back to their communities throughout their lives.

    To be eligible for this award, applicant must be a Maine resident. High school seniors, or anyone who has received a high school diploma and is entering the first year of post-secondary education at a Title IV eligible institution, are eligible. Scholarships are awarded based on character through an assessment process including a written essay, which demonstrates the four principles of courage, integrity, responsibility and concern. A personal interview is also required. The scholarship is not renewable.

The memorial, which was approved by, and registered with the college, was quickly [...]

Private Jet College Tours? Sure...If You Have $100K

September 6, 2016

by Susan Dutca

It's not feasible to do 10 campus visits in only 5 days - unless you're willing and able to pay for a private jet that costs more than college tuition itself. Magellan Jets offers a college tour package to "decrease both the headache and the time spent on college campus visits." So if you have $100,000 to spare, sit back, relax, and enjoy the refreshment bar as you soar to your next campus [...]
