The purpose of MECSF is to increase the educational opportunities for children of low-income families.
We offer scholarships to low-income Maine families who send their child to a public, private or home school. Scholarships are available for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade as long as funds are available. Families must meet the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Income guidelines to qualify.
