The Lamey Wellehan Maine Difference Scholarship
The Maine Difference Scholarship, a program funded by Lamey-Wellehan, is intended to aid in the cost of attaining education for a Maine young person studying at a Maine college or university.
The focus of the student’s studies should be on the ecology and economics of Maine. The emphasis on these aspects with Maine as an intense background is structured to ensure that both the student and the State of Maine benefit from the scholarship and careers that result from the student’s education.
The award is a renewable $1,000 scholarship for undergraduate study at any college or university in Maine. Lamey Wellehan has eliminated shopping bags at all of our stores with the goal of helping to reduce the millions of bags that are flooding our environment. The money we once used to purchase these bags is now being funneled into our scholarship program which has allowed us to increase our scholarship offerings to three annually.To be eligible to receive The Maine Difference Scholarship, the applicant must be either:
- A Maine high school senior who will graduate in the spring and who will enter a Maine college in the fall; or
- A graduate of a Maine high school in one of the four years preceding the current year who will be enrolled in a Maine college in the fall.
Submit the completed application by May 30th. Due to the impact of COVID-19 we have extended our deadline to June 30th.
