Next Step Maine Scholarship Fund
MDF and our partner, the Maine State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), are pleased to announce the second year of our scholarship program for adult and non-traditional aged students, the Next Step Maine Scholarship Fund. Starting today, we will be accepting applications for up to 20 available scholarships in 2014, with awards of $1,000 to $2,500.
MDF strongly believes in the importance of building the skills of our incumbent workforce. We need to do all that we can to encourage non-traditional students and working adults to 'take their next step,’ but also provide real support to help them succeed. The Next Step Scholarship Fund is one way that we can do more.
WHO CAN RECEIVE A SCHOLARSHIP?
These scholarships are designed for employees who are engaged in taking the next step in their education, who are pursuing an associate’s or bachelor’s degree or industry certification, and who are considered promising contributors to the companies or organizations for whom they work.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
Scholarship applications must be submitted by employers, who can ‘nominate’ eligible employees, a short personal statement from the employee is required.
All applications will be made online this year. Go to Employer Nomination Form to nominate one of your promising employees today using our simple online form.
