Congratulations 2020 scholarship winners!!

ProsperityME is excited to announce the winners of the 2020-2021 PROSPER Scholarship; a scholarship to help asylum-seekers work toward an associate’s or bachelor’s degree at a Maine college or university.

The six award winners were selected from a highly competitive pool of more than 40 asylum-seeking students currently enrolled in high schools and colleges in Southern and Central Maine. Because asylum-seekers are ineligible for federal financial aid, many are often forced to postpone higher education goals. The PROSPER Scholarship gives asylum-seekers the opportunity to pursue their dreams right here in Maine.
