AREA — For the ninth year in a row, the Diane E. Curtis Medical Scholarship will be made available to an aspiring student who wishes to pursue a career in the medical field. The scholarship was formed to honor the life of Diane E. Curtis of Norway, who lost her courageous 10-year battle with breast cancer in January of 2014.

The purpose of the $1,000 one-time-only per recipient annual scholarship is to reward an Oxford or Androscoggin County high school, prep school, or home-schooled student, who aspires to become a member of the medical field, and who is a committed member of their community. This scholarship is also available to any current college student graduating from a high school or prep school in Androscoggin or Oxford County. Applications are available at the office of each school’s Guidance Counselor or by requesting one by following the procedure given below.

Timing of the application process is critical. All applications must be completed and received, not postmarked, by Thomas H.L. Curtis on or before February 28, 2022. The applicants will then have their applications reviewed by an evaluation committee, with possibly up to four applicants being asked to submit to personal interviews. The final selection process of selecting the 2022 winning applicant will then be completed with a public announcement of the scholarship winner occurring no later than June 1, 2022.

The Scholarship Committee will ask the winning applicant to be present to receive his/her award at a high school/prep school assembly. A representative check of $1,000 will be presented to the chosen candidate at that time with the monies actually being represented after the candidate’s first semester grades have been received by the Scholarship Committee in early 2022.

For additional information, or to receive an application form, please request same by sending a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Thomas H. L. Curtis, P.O. Box #67, Norway, ME 04268
