“The Worthington Scholarship Foundation (WSF) is a Maine 501 (c)3 private operating foundation. We provide scholarships, mentoring and other support services to Worthington Scholars. Initial selection is by the scholarship committees of participating high schools. This generous renewable scholarship has expanded in 2020 to benefit graduates of twenty three high schools: Oceanside, Camden Hills, Medomak Valley, Mt. View, Searsport, Belfast. Boothbay Region, Wiscasset, Lincoln Academy, Bucksport, Mt. Desert, Ellsworth, Deer Isle-Stonington, George Stevens Academy, Sumner Memorial, East Grand, Shead, Calais, Jonesport-Beals, Narraguagus, Machias Memorial, Washington Academy and Woodland. Scholarships are up to $16,000 for students attending eligible 4-year colleges ($2,000 per semester renewable for up to four years.). Community college scholarships are $2,000 per semester through the duration of a degree program. Awards can be renewed to cover multi-year programs, and community college scholars may continue to receive a scholarship if they decide to pursue a Bachelors. Scholars must be attending one of our partner colleges in Maine to qualify.
We aim to to help make college attendance more affordable. Foundation staff provide mentoring to students throughout students’ college careers to mitigate any challenges to receiving a degree. The Foundation is committed to the success of every Worthington Scholar and takes pride in assisting scholars in the pursuit of their goals.
