Humanities opportunity for Maine students

The Maine DOE is pleased to share an opportunity for students to participate in the Maine Humanities Council’s Student Humanities Ambassador Program. The council is seeking committed, passionate and excited students who would benefit from an alternative learning environment or who flourish in an environment of structured autonomy to participate.

This program offers students the opportunity to spark humanities-based conversations about the issues and ideas they really care about. Selected students are awarded $1,000 to create, plan, run and evaluate a humanities-based program or event within their communities.

The deadline is March 31. Visit the Student Humanities Ambassador web page to learn more or contact Assistant Director of Maine Humanities Council Anne Schlitt at or call 773-5051.
