The Maine 4-H Foundation is dedicated to supporting the Maine 4-H program. Each year the Foundation provides funding for 4-H legacy and new programs. Our legacy programs include the Karen Hatch Gagne National 4-H Congress Award, the Harold H. Brown Eastern States Award, as well as the Maine 4-H Foundation Endowment Funds held to secure annual support to National 4-H Conference and Congress, Citizenship Washington Focus, Eastern States, Maine 4-H Days, and 4-H at the University of Maine. In addition, volunteers, 4-H youth members, and staff are invited during the course of the year to apply for additional funding for new and innovative projects.
These scholarships are available to participants in the 4-H Program, pursuing higher education. Deadlines: March 4, 2016 to UMaine Extension county office; March 11, 2016 to Maine 4-H Foundation.
