The Powering Education Scholarship was established by Alpha One to assist people with disabilities who wish to pursue post-secondary education. The scholarship will provide up to $2000 per candidate who is accepted into post-secondary school education (after high school), including undergraduate college education as well as graduate programs. Applicants must have a documented disability, be attending/attended high school within the state of Maine and have a B average or equivalent GPA, and be accepted into a post-secondary institution. Applicants must include an essay reflecting on how their disability has helped shape their view of the world.
Alpha One empowers individuals with disabilities to take charge of choices and act on their own behalf to achieve their goals for independence. Alpha One advocates for consumer programs and services as well as access and change within society throughout the state of Maine. Throughout their generosity, Alpha One offers numerous services to residents with disabilities, such as financial aid for post-secondary education.
