OUT Maine is thrilled to announce the award of scholarships totaling $31,000 to three outstanding young people to help them better their futures. This Spring, OUT Maine received over 25 applications for the OUT Maine LGBTQ+ Scholarship program.

After careful consideration, the OUT Maine scholarship committee selected three incredibly deserving applicants to receive scholarships to address their financial needs to attend the colleges/universities of their choosing for this upcoming fall with the intention of continued financial support over the remainder of their college careers. Ronan, Ty, and Sasha have demonstrated excellence in their educational pursuits, volunteer work, and passion for helping.

Awarding their deserving students with financial assistance for continued education is an honor.
