The Northeast Harbor Library’s Scholarship Committee has funding available to all full-time Mount Desert Elementary School and Town of Cranberry Isles School students annually through our Astor Special Opportunity Grant Program.
These Grants are made to help enable individual students to pursue activities and learning opportunities in the arts, natural and physical sciences, social sciences, and personal development programs.
The maximum amount awarded per student will be the lesser of (a) one half of the program cost or (b) $500. The grant checks will be issued to institutions or teachers, not the student applicants. Students may receive only one Astor award during their entire elementary school career.
