he Northeast Harbor Library
Scholarship Committee has a modest
amount of funding available annually for Astor Special Opportunity grants. As
of 2015, only full-time Mount Desert Elementary School students are eligible.
Also starting in 2015, students may receive only one Astor award during their
entire elementary school career. Students who received an Astor award in 2014
or before may receive one additional Astor award. Grants are made to help
enable students to pursue activities and learning opportunities in the arts,
natural and physical sciences, social sciences and personal development
programs. The maximum amount awarded per student will be the lesser of (a) one
half of the program cost or (b) $500. On the library website click on About.

deadline is 4/15/17.
