2011 Mitchell Scholars and Scholarship Increase Announced - Posted: 6.6.11
Senator George J. Mitchell was in Maine today to announce the selection of this year's Mitchell Scholars--and to share news of an increase to the scholarships from $5,000 to $6,000 per student. "It is especially exciting to announce that the Board of Directors of the Institute recently approved an increase in the value of the scholarships we award. Beginning with the students just selected, the Mitchell Scholarships will be $6,000. We know that college costs are rising even as family resources are diminishing. This decision to increase the scholarship signals our commitment to Maine's students, and to the future of this great state," said Senator Mitchell. One hundred twenty-nine (129) Maine high school students have been chosen as the 2011 Mitchell Scholars--one from every public high school in the state. Read the news release, including a list of the 2011 Scholars.
