ROCKLAND — The Worthington Scholarship Foundation has awarded 215 college scholarships this year totaling $3.4 million to students throughout the mid-coast and Down East.

The Worthington Scholarship Foundation, based in Rockland, provides one of the largest scholarships in the state, totaling up to $16,500 per student for four-year students and $1,500 per semester for community college students. Aside from funding, the foundation also provides ongoing staff support to their student scholars to ensure they succeed. 

“Our scholars have overcome various personal challenges in their lives to recognize the importance of obtaining a quality education for their future,” says Justin Chenette, the foundation’s program director. “They are staying in Maine due to our scholarship and we are excited to support the next generation achieve a solid foundation of success.”
