ELLSWORTH— Residents over the age of 18 who are on a “road less traveled” and are seeking educational experiences that will change their life and the lives of people around them are invited to apply for a James and Marilyn Rockefeller Transition Scholarship.
The application deadline for the Rockefeller Transition Scholarship is June 1, 2015. Complete guidelines and application forms are available at www.mainecf.org. Eligible applicants must have completed a College Transitions program through one of the state’s adult education programs within the last year and be undertaking a post-secondary educational opportunity.
The selection committee is looking for applicants who have exhibited uncommon tenacity, focus, hope, and humor in the face of adversity, and/or who are pursuing a meaningful life change that requires additional education, traditional or nontraditional. Applicants should be determined to succeed, be serious about learning, and have a plan (academic and financial) to achieve their goal.
A statewide organization with offices in Ellsworth and Portland, the Maine Community Foundation has worked with donors and educators since 1983 to provide Maine students access to educational opportunities. The community foundation manages more than 500 scholarship funds.
