100% of the proceeds from our Thursday night silent auction and Friday night live auction are given out to kids from Maine seafood families – and that is an unusual event in today’s tight economy! Anything that you might be able to donate would be greatly appreciated – especially by the kids who, with our hope and blessings, will do Maine and its citizens proud in their future endeavors.
The Maine Fishermen’s Forum Scholarship Fund was established for the benefit of immediate family members (son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter) of anyone actively participating in Maine’s seafood industry. Undergraduates attending a two or four year college who are in at least their second year of their program are eligible for Scholarships of at least $1,000.00. Donations to the scholarship fund are always welcome, and are tax deductible since the Maine Fishermen’s Forum is a non-profit organization.
The Maine Fishermen’s Forum Board of Directors is pleased to announce the winners of the 2016 Forum Scholarship Awards.
The next drawing for this scholarship will be held on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at the Samoset Resort in Rockport during the 42nd annual Maine Fishermen’s Forum. Applications are available for downloading or by sending a SASE to Maine Fishermen’s Forum, PO Box 288, Bath, ME 04530. The deadline date for submission is March 1, 2017.
