ELLSWORTH — Adult learners from Franklin County who are returning to school for post-secondary education are eligible to apply for the Hugh and Elizabeth Montgomery Scholarship.

Preference is given to students for whom a scholarship would make a significant difference in their ability to attend school. First-time applicants need not be enrolled in a degree-granting program but are encouraged to make that commitment before applying for renewal consideration.

Both Elizabeth (Betty) and Hugh Montgomery had their roots in Phillips, the former born and raised there, the latter a summer resident. They both pursued careers as librarians.

The deadlines for applications are Dec. 16 and again on Aug. 12, 2017. Complete guidelines and application form are available through the Maine Community Foundation.
