Adult Degree Completion Scholarship Fund announced by the University of Maine System

“Maine adults who want to return to college may qualify for as much as $4,000 per year in scholarships for up to four years, in a new Adult Degree Completion Scholarship Fund announced by the University of Maine System. The System’s fund aims to help Maine people complete their academic studies at one of the Universities of the University of Maine System —many adults started their university education years ago, but did not complete a degree program for some reason, likely due to family or work obligations. The new scholarships are for adult students enrolling in a System university after an absence of three years or more from higher education, and who are completing their very first baccalaureate degree. Courses may be taken at any of the seven universities in Maine.

In addition, a new “concierge” service has been established to assist and guide adult students, in the same way that the hospitality industry has concierges to help guide guests to explore a new area.  The university concierges, based in 15 Maine communities, will help adult students achieve their educational goals through activities such as applying to a university, choosing a major, finding financial assistance, and registering for courses.”

To find out more information about the scholarships, go to:

The next application deadline is August 1.

Ad Council GED Achievement Campaign


Dollar General Literacy Foundation and the Ad Council are proud to partner on a national public service advertising (PSA) campaign that aims to help high school dropouts get started on the road to their GED® Diploma.

These young adults know they need to get their GED Diploma but need to be reminded they can do it. The multi-media campaign is scheduled to launch in July 2010 and all materials will be available in English and Spanish. View the TV PSA.

All PSAs will feature a toll free number 877-38-YOURGED and a new website, where people can find free referrals to local GED programs and information on the GED Diploma process. The program referrals come from a new comprehensive database developed in collaboration with National Center for Family Literacy and ProLiteracy.

We encourage you to extend the reach of the campaign through your communications. For Frequently Asked Questions about the campaign materials and usage, please refer to this document. For more information on the referral database, please visit

Thanks in advance for your support!
