Ira Cobe Hutchinson Center Scholarship

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
