State scholarship program opens

Jan 25, 2021

The 2021 Maine State Society of Washington, D.C., scholarship program is now open and applications are due on the anniversary of Maine’s statehood, March 15. Application may be made at

Maine State Society of Washington, D.C., was founded in 1894 as a home to displaced Mainers in the D.C. area and has offered scholarships to deserving Mainers since 1990.  Over the course of 30 years, the foundation has awarded more than $242,000 in scholarship funds to more than 200 students.

The scholarships, ranging from $1,000 to $2,500, were awarded to full-time students who completed at least one year of undergraduate courses at a four-year, degree-granting, nonprofit institution of higher learning in the state of Maine. Scholarships were funded by donations from members of the Maine State Society of Washington, D.C., and other supporters of the state of Maine and tomorrow’s leaders.

Information about the 2021 scholarship application can be found on the Maine State Society of Washington, D.C., website at Questions may be directed to:  Sarah Conroy at
