A charitable nonprofit arm of FHC, the Community Education Foundation (CEF) supports students who aspire to higher education, aiding them according to financial need, academic merit, and community involvement.
FHC’s Community Education Foundation Scholarship reflects our commitment to students enrolled in graduate, undergraduate, and certificate programs. Each academic semester the CEF board members invite employees, customers, vendors, and neighbors of FHC to participate in a blind review of scholarship application material. Upon, completion of this review awards are made to successful applicants. The CEF is intended as unrestricted support.
Who We Are:
The FHC Community Education Foundation was created to foster and encourage members of the FHC extended family and community to seek post high school educational opportunities that may include 2- or 4-year undergraduate degrees, vocational programs and graduate studies. The “FHC extended family” is defined as FHC employees and their families world-wide, the residents of surrounding campus locations in Bowdoin, Maine and Greenville, Pennsylvania, as well as immediate family members of our vendors and customers. “Community” is defined as any resident of the Midcoast Maine area.
