JMG College Scholarship Sponsors
JMG is grateful to the following sponsors for believing and investing in Maine students.
Andrew L. Hutchins Memorial Scholarship:
Andrew graduated from Carrabec High School in June 2008, where he was a member of the Willpower Weightlifting program, played basketball and baseball. He also served as president of the Jobs for Maine Graduates. Being a member of JMG and being honorable meant a lot to Andrew. In March of 2008 Andrew enlisted in the US Army. He was killed in action in November 2010 while serving his country in Afghanistan. Because of his proud involvement in JMG, the family of Andrew Hutchins created a scholarship in his memory for all Maine JMG students.
Machias Savings Bank - Difference Maker Scholarship:
Giving back and making a difference in Maine is at the core of our culture at Machias Savings Bank. We recognize that JMG students are devoting time to the community, overcoming barriers to success, and looking forward to their post high school education. We realize the future to the state we call home will be made by these difference makers and it is something we want to reward.
Maine State Chamber of Commerce Scholarship:
Since 1889, the Maine State Chamber of Commerce has been working to promote a positive business climate in Maine, making it possible for Maine businesses to compete successfully in local, regional, national and international marketplaces. Their membership is made up of a network of approximately 5,000 businesses across Maine. The State Chamber understands the importance that education plays in our economic growth and social health and feels that it takes a whole community to support and ensure the success of our youth. The Maine State Chamber is proud to join JMG in providing a scholarship fund for graduating JMG students. Such scholarships help ease the cost of college. More importantly, these scholarships encourage Maine’s students to reach their potential and to become contributing members of Maine’s economy.
The MaineHealth Scholarship was established to offer investment in JMG students as they pursue a future in healthcare. Scholarships provide an opportunity for JMG students to affordably pursue a rewarding healthcare career. Supporting educational initiatives is a vital way to help the next generations of Mainers gain access to healthcare education.
