Promise Scholarship

The AYC wants to help send you to USM on a Promise Scholarship!
The University of Southern Maine's new 
Promise Scholarship Program will provide scholarships to
100 qualified Maine students for up to 50% of tuition and fees!!


The program is designed to help students overcome financial and academic barriers, remain in school, and graduate in four years with less debt, prepared to make their own contributions to Maine's social and economic well-being.
And the AYC wants to help!

As a recognized Youth Development Organization we are able to help recruit college-bound and college transfer students for the 

Promise Scholarship Program.
We offer assistance to students in completing the application process:
  • Applying to USM
  • Applying for FASFA and other scholarship and financial aid applications.
  • Completing the on line Promise Scholar Application 
  • Former Club members should request a letter of recommendation from our CEO, Ken Walsh.  




The Scholarship
  • Closes the gap between financial aid received and the cost of college
  • Awarded Dollars are up to 50% of the college cost.
  • Is awarded for all 4 years.  
  • Supplies a mentor for 4-years to help complete college successfully
At this time there is enough funding available for about 
15 Promise Scholars for the class entering in Fall 2018.
So, what are you waiting for?  Apply Now!
