Mitchell Scholarship for Maine High School Seniors Extends Deadline

Given the current circumstances, the Mitchell Institute is extending the Mitchell Scholarship application deadlines by one month. Learn More Here:  http://mitchellinstitute.org/scholarship/

Extended MAY 1 deadline (previously April 1):

  • Online Mitchell Scholarship application
  •  High school transcript with mid-year grades
  • Recommendation letter
  •  Student Aid Report

Extended JUNE 1 deadline (previously May 1):

  •  College acceptance letter for applicant’s top choice school
  • Financial aid offer for applicant’s top choice school

We hope these extensions will alleviate some of the pressure that students may be feeling. We truly appreciate the effort that has already been put into submitting applications and required documents. Though we had hoped to start evaluating applications next week, we understand that it may be difficult for some applicants and their schools to meet the April 1 deadline due to recent announcements that many schools have now extended remote learning until the end of April. We are also aware that a growing number of colleges have extended their enrollment deposit deadlines to June 1. We also hope this additional time will provide the opportunity for continued outreach to students who have not yet applied.
