  • Scholarship Description
  • The Mitchell Scholarships were established in 1994 by U.S. Senator George J. Mitchell. One of Senator Mitchell’s highest priorities is to expand and improve opportunities for the education of young people in Maine. The Mitchell Institute awards a scholarship to a graduating senior from every public high school in Maine.

    The scholarship award is in the amount of up to $8,000 for students pursuing a two- or four-year degree. The focus of the Mitchell Institute has always been, and continues to be, Maine students attending Maine colleges and universities. In an effort to help as many Maine students as possible obtain a higher education, the Mitchell Institute now has some scholarships available for Maine students planning to attend college out of state.

    The recipients are to be selected according to the following criteria:
    - Each recipient must be a legal resident of Maine and must plan to attend a four-year or two-year degree program at an accredited college or university and must be a graduating senior from a public high school in Maine; applicants must be planning to enter their first year of college during the coming September
    - Recipients will be chosen by the Scholarship Committee of the Senator George J. Mitchell Scholarship Research Institute and applications submitted by eligible students based on academic performance/academic potential, community service and financial need

With ever-increasing college costs ranging between $120,000 and $200,000 (depending on the school), some politicians' higher education reforms are simply a "massive bailout wrapped in the promise of free tuition and relief from student loans." College unaffordability has forced [...]
