Thinking of returning to college? You can with an Adult Degree Scholarship. Apply by August 1st. [York Adult & Community Education]

Maine adults who want to return to college may qualify for as much as $4,000 per year in scholarships for up to four years, in a new Adult Degree Completion Scholarship Fund announced by the University of Maine System. The System's fund aims to help Maine people complete their academic studies at one of the Universities of the University of Maine System--many adults started their university education years ago, but did not complete a degree program for some reason, likely due to family or work obligations. The new scholarships are for adult students enrolling in a System university after an absence of three years or more from higher education, and who are completing their very first baccalaureate degree. Courses may be taken at any of the seven universities in Maine. In addition, a new "concierge" service has been established to assist and guide adult students, in the same way that the hospitality industry has concierges to help guide guests to explore a new area.  The university concierges, based in 15 Maine communities, will help adult students achieve their educational goals through activities such as applying to a university, choosing a major, finding financial assistance, and registering for courses." To find out more information about the scholarships, go to:
