PORTLAND & ELLSWORTH — Adult learners from Franklin County returning to school for post-secondary education are eligible to apply for the Hugh and Elizabeth Montgomery Scholarship at the Maine Community Foundation (MaineCF).

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.

The deadline to submit applications is Friday, May 24. For more information and to apply, visit www.mainecf.org/scholarships.

The Maine Community Foundation brings people and resources together to build a better Maine through strategic giving, community leadership, personalized service, local expertise and strong investments. To learn more about the foundation, visit www.mainecf.org.
