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.
For others who might be curious about the site, please feel free to check out any of the other pages, and feel free to contact us with any questions you might have!
One of the best ways to help control college costs is through scholarships and grants. While most scholarships have deadlines that fall between February and May, there are others that you can apply for year round. For example, if you are going to Kennebec Valley Community College, it is encouraged that you apply for their Foundation Scholarship prior to August 15. Not sure what scholarships are available to you? There are a lot of search engines out there, and it can be hard to figure out which are the best. MEOC features a variety of scholarships throughout the year. (Previously featured scholarships can be found be found here.)
One site that you can trust is the Finance Authority of Maine Website. Their Maine Scholarship search engine is a fast and easy way to find scholarships that may fit for you.
Good luck, and you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact your MEOC advisor!
