Mitchell Scholars are selected based on academic promise, community impact, and financial need. From 1995 to 2017, we have awarded 2,732 Mitchell Scholarships — totaling more than $14.5 million — to deserving students from every community in Maine.
Mitchell Scholars join in what we call the Mitchell Institute Family — an ever-growing group of supporters, friends, and community members who are dedicated to the success of these young people. We invite you to learn a little bit more about our Family.
For details on their educational experiences, demographics, and aspirations, please see our Scholars Fact Sheet. To get a picture of who our Scholars are, please see our Scholar Profiles page, or watch the video below for an in-depth look at two of our now-Alumni, whose stories are representative of so many of our current Scholars.
