Bettie H. MacRae Scholarship

Scholarship Description

The Bettie H. MacRae Scholarship Fund supports residents of Islesboro who are adult learners (age 23 and over) going to school to pursue career-related education. This might include certificate programs and college classes (but not at the graduate level). Preference will be given to female applicants demonstrating a determination to succeed and for whom a scholarship would make a significant difference in their ability to attend the program of their choice.Bettie was raised in Florida and California and lived for many years in Pennsylvania. Later in her life, she found her way to Islesboro and lived on the island for 35 years, initially during the summer and later as a year-round resident. Her life was characterized by a deep interest in arts and culture. She befriended and provided for many. Bettie nurtured a deep love of nature, loved living near the ocean and cultivating a lifelong knowledge and appreciation for trees, plants and flowers. This memorial scholarship fund is created by Bettie’s three children, Pamela, Charlotte and Christopher, and is directed to the year-round community of Islesboro in appreciation for the many quiet kindnesses of friendship offered to Bettie over the years.Contact: Islesboro Town Office
