Cobe Connects Award

Scholarship Description

Cobe Connects is a partnership with eligible students to support school-sponsored, curriculum-based, educational opportunities during the academic year for which funding is not otherwise available. Maximum award is $500 and $250 for class trips, and each applicant is expected to share the cost of the opportunity. Preference is given to students who have not received a Cobe Connects award in the current academic year. Eligibility is based on the guidelines on the application. Curriculum-based educational opportunities include but are not limited to: enrollment in an early-college program; participation in class trips (maximum award $250); purchase of educational supplies; and summer school tuition. Please contact the Maine Community Foundation if you have questions concerning a specific opportunity. Proposals are reviewed once a month and awards will generally be made within thirty days of receipt of the application. Awards are not retroactive.
