FIRST CLASS Scholarship for Adults

The College for ME-Androscoggin First Class Scholarship for Adults will be awarded to qualified adults who plan:

  • To take their first college course in Spring of 2014

  • To take their first course following a significant gap of five (5) or more years in college enrollment in Spring 2014

Scholarship funds will cover the costs of tuition for a single credit-bearing course (not to exceed 3 credits) at an accredited postsecondary program in Androscoggin County. The amount of the scholarship will vary depending upon the tuition cost of the college in Androscoggin County that the applicant plans to attend. The award will be made directly to the college upon proof of enrollment.

Recipients of this scholarship will automatically become members of the First Class Adult Cohort Program. The group will meet before and during the semester to help students prepare for and succeed in this first course. Sessions will focus on technology, study skills, financial aid, student academic support services, and course selection and registration. Cohort advising will help these adults transition into further post-secondary study. Group members who complete the program and succeed academically in their class will be celebrated at College for ME-Androscoggin’s annual Awards Luncheon. Members of the cohort will be asked to help mentor members of the next cohort.
