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 Book 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 book scholarships of at least $1,000.00.
In recognition of the 45th Anniversary of the Maine Fishermen’s Forum, the Board of Directors is offering a $4,500 Scholarship! We are also honored to have TWO $6,000 scholarships made possible by an anonymous fisherman donor!
Donations to the book 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 2019 Forum Book Scholarship Awards.
The next drawing for this book scholarship will be held on Saturday, March 7, 2020 at the Samoset Resort in Rockport during the 43rd 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 4, 2020.
