The 2014 Maine Policy Scholars:

Each year one student from each of the University Campuses, working with a faculty advisor, tackles a real life policy issue facing Maine.  After conducting extensive research, the scholar produces a final report in the form of a memo to the Governor or appropriate policymaker outlining the problem the data available and recommended policy solutions.

Final presentations are made to a panel of policy practitioners.  The program is managed by the Maine Community Foundation and overseen by an advisory committee of policyholders and University of Maine faculty.

I’m so proud to announce that my grandson Tyler who attends the University of Farmington (UMF) was chosen as the 2014 Scholar and his topic is, “What should the State of Maine do to help students applying for college?”  His advisor is Professor James Melcher.

The Maine Community Foundation will be holding the presentation and reception on Friday, April 4.

Congratulations Tyler!
