Scholarships listed by MHS are not intended to be a comprehensive list. Please consider this information as an abbreviated listing of announcements that have been sent to the MHS Guidance Office by different institutions.

Each scholarship has different requirements and criteria including application instructions, deadlines, and award amounts.

Scholarship opportunities are posted in several locations

- Emailed to students


It is a student's responsibility to seek, obtain, and complete scholarship applications.
Students are encouraged to complete as many applications as appropriate to help meet their individual post-secondary goals.



Beware of Scholarship Scams! It is easy to fall victim to scholarship offers that come in the mail promising thousands of dollars in scholarship money for only a nominal service fee. FAME (The Finance Authority of Maine) strongly discourages students from paying a fee to any company to assist in the scholarship search or financial aid application process.
