Welcome to the Maine Educational Opportunity Center Website!

Welcome to the Maine Educational Opportunity Center Website. We are a federally funded program that works with adults to assist them in going on to college. This website was built to provide some basic information about the services we provide, and how to access them.

For those interested in attending one of our workshops, please check out the two workshop related pages, Workshops and Workshop Schedule. These contain both descriptions of our workshops and the next workshops in your area.

New Feature: If you would like to register yourself for a MEOC workshop, go to the workshop schedules sectionand click on the workshop you would like to attend. If you have any questions, please call 1-800-281-3703.

Stipends available for Veterans

Are you a veteran either currently enrolled in college, or looking to go back to college? There’s a new Veteran’s Upward Bound (VUB) program available at the University of Southern Maine (USM) designed to help deal specifically with the issues of Veterans and postsecondary education. (FYI, you don’t have to be enrolled or looking to be enrolled at USM.)

This summer, they are running a Summer Bridge program for Veterans, and participants who complete the program will receive a $120 stipend.
