1. High school seniors who will attend a four-year college, and
2. High school seniors who will attend a Maine Community College.
Awards are limited to residents of Maine.
It is the intent of the Trustees that brochures for the Clyde Russell Scholarship Fund will be generally available through high school guidance offices in the state of Maine beginning in October of any given year.
Application forms are also available on the Clyde Russell Scholarship website.
The Trustees may grant the awards in all categories to recipients who meet multi-faceted and diverse criteria, as opposed to any single criteria such as financial need or scholastic achievement.
Each year the Trustees will determine the number of scholarships to be awarded. Runner-up finalists will receive $500 in recognition of their outstanding achievement and/or cultural contribution.
