The Worthington Scholarship is a generous renewable scholarship that benefits graduates of three Knox County high schools: Oceanside, Camden Hills and Medomak Valley. For 2018-19 academic year, the Worthington Scholarship will expand to include three Waldo County high schools: Belfast Area High School, Mount View High School, and Searsport District High School. Future years will see further expansion throughout the state of Maine. The award amount is $4,000/year, renewable for up to four years depending on student’s high school GPA and expected family contribution of $15,000 or less (determined by the FAFSA). Students are restricted to in-state institutions, and lower net cost private institutions, that have demonstrated a commitment to student success. Please see the eligibility guidelines for your high school to determine which colleges you are eligible to attend on the scholarship. The Worthington Scholarship is administered by the Maine Community Foundation. MaineCF staff are available to answer any questions or concerns about payments, eligibility criteria, or difficulties with the renewal application.
The Worthington Scholarship Foundation assists students in selecting an affordable college choice, minimizing student debt, and achieving a 2 or 4-year degree. Foundation staff provide mentoring to students starting in high school and continue this relationship throughout students’ college careers to avoid any potential barriers to receiving a degree. Programming and events are meant to connect students with each other, staff, and community resources and partners. Personalized career development assistance is provided throughout a student’s college experience. The Worthington Scholarship Foundation is committed to the success of every Worthington Scholar and takes pride in assisting every Scholar in the pursuit of their goals.
