Invest in Mitchell Scholars. Invest in Maine.

The Mitchell Institute strengthens Maine communities by providing Maine students a path to success in college and beyond. We award a total of $1.3 million in college scholarships every year to students from every public high school in Maine, who are chose with a balanced view of their financial need, academic potential, and community impact. What separates us from other scholarship organizations, though, is the broad array of support programs we provide. This combination of personal, professional, and financial support makes college degrees more attainable for Mitchell Scholars. And our approach works: Mitchell Scholars graduate college at a rate 30% higher than the national average, and are more likely than their peers to stay in Maine or return to the state after college.
