Purpose: Mission of the Maine’s Children’s Scholarship Fund
We offer scholarships to low-income Maine families who send their child to a public, private or home school. Scholarships are available for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade as long as funds are available. Families must meet the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Income guidelines to qualify.
Parental involvement in the education of children is a critical element of success. By directly contributing to the education of their children, families affirm their vital stake in that education. Accordingly, our Fund offers no more than 75 percent of tuition, up to a cap of $1700; the remainder of the cost is arranged between the parent or guardian, and the school.
MCSF is committed to continuing to provide scholarships to recipients as long as they live in the State of Maine, continue to demonstrate financial need, meet all deadlines and follow the program guidelines, and as long as funds are available.
