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!
Yesterday afternoon we heard that MEOC’s grant application was successful, and that we will have funding for 5 more years! More information about the new grant will be coming soon.
Our thanks to everyone who helps make MEOC successful!
While the deadline has passed for many scholarships, did you know that there are others that are still available? Many of these scholarships are tied specifically to colleges or to educations centers.
One example is the Ira Cobe Hutchinson Center Scholarship, which is available to students who are attending college through the Hutchinson Center in Belfast. As the description from the Maine Community Foundation site reads:
The Ira Cobe Scholarship Trust was established by the estate of Chicago financier and longtime Bayside summer resident Ira M. Cobe. Mr. Cobe and his wife, a Belfast native, had a deep affection for Maine’s young people. The fund provides support in meeting certain educational expenses of residents of Waldo County under the age of 23 who meet the eligibility criteria. The Cobe Hutchinson Center Program is a partnership with first-time students at the Hutchinson Center who are taking a class to explore the possibility of furthering their education.
Contact: Hutchinson Center or Maine Community Foundation
Application Deadline: Rolling, no later than 5 days before the start of classes
