Who Can Apply: The Geiger Scholarship supports students from Maine’s year-round, un-bridged islands who are eager to expand their educational horizons through off-island enrichment and travel experiences. The focus is on providing this opportunity to students who will grow individually through participation in off-island enrichment experiences. This scholarship is intended to serve students who may not otherwise be able to have these experiences. Preference is given for students pursuing programs independently, rather than participating in a pre-planned class trip.
– Middle School students attending off-island enrichment or travel programs, including summer camp
– High School students attending a semester enrichment program (such as a semester school)
or attending an off-island summer camp, travel, or enrichment program
– College Students participating in a semester or summer study abroad program
– Students enrolled in a gap year program between high school and post-secondary education
Deadline: November 30, 2017
