All subsidized housing recipients in Public Housing or a Section 8 program are eligible to apply to for a PHA Scholarship. If they are pursuing higher education through accredited programs during the 2020-2021 academic year, they are welcome to apply no matter the age: young, old, or lifelong learners.
The scholarship is for up to $2,500 and is paid directly to the recipient. It is intended to support their academic education, whether the student needs help with tuition, books, a computer, or transportation to attend class. Application requires a short essay where the applicant tells us how the funding will help them reach their educational goals. Complete applications are due on May 15th by 4 PM at the PHA Offices located at 14 Baxter Blvd. Portland, Maine.
The number of individual awards and amounts shall be determined by the Scholarship Committee and are limited to the amount of funds available for distribution. For more information, contact Emily Mancini-Fitch.
