CAMDEN — The Camden American Legion is providing two separate scholarship opportunities in 2022: the War Memorial Veterans Scholarship and the War Memorial & Friends Technical School Scholarship. The War Memorial Veterans Scholarship is available for any graduating senior at Camden Hills Regional High School who is going on to secondary education at any accredited college or university. The War Memorial & Friends Technical Scholarship is available to any student in the technical trades at the Mid Coast School of Technology in Rockland or the adult education program in technical trades. This scholarship may be used to assist paying for apprenticeship programs, short-term certificate courses, one-year certificates, and two-year degrees focusing on all technical trades. Both scholarships are available to be utilized by home schooling students as well as in residence students. The scholarship for MCST students may also be applied to the purchase of required tools and equipment a student may need to continue their education.
The War Memorial Veterans Scholarship application is available at the CHRHS guidance office. The Technical School scholarship application is also available at the CHRHS guidance office but can also be picked up at the office at the MCST. Both offices have the guidance on submitting the applications in the proper manner. For more information on these scholarships call Ron Vanosdol, Post 30 Finance Officer at 508-335-0646.
