Applications are being accepted at the Maine Community Foundation for the Lydia R. Laurendeau Scholarship Fund.

There is a preference for applicants demonstrating an interest and/or actively participating in their Franco-American heritage.

The deadline for applications is June 1. Applications are available at mainecf.org.
