Maine State, Regional and Outside Scholarships

Directions:
The scholarships listed below are overseen by other organizations (not CHRHS). Paper copies of the applications are available in the filing cabinet in the Counseling Office waiting area. (Please help yourself). Many are also available electronically by emailing Mrs. Carlsen a list of the applications you would like.

  • You are responsible for gathering all of the materials you need for these applications, and you must mail these applications to the organizations yourself.
  • If a scholarship requires a copy of your confidential counselor recommendation letter, please bring your application and all the required materials to the school counseling office in a pre-addressed envelope with postage affixed so it may be mailed from CHRHS. We cannot give you a copy of your confidential counselor recommendation.
  • You will need to follow the same procedure if your scholarship requires an official (signed and sealed) transcript. Please be sure to bring this to the Counseling Office at least three days prior to the deadline.
  • Follow the deadline on the actual application, not the deadline listed here as some are just estimates.

PLEASE NOTE:  Additional scholarships WILL BE ADDED SOON.  They will be listed in RED.
