Awesome Organizations

The Alfond Scholarship Foundation partners with many business and community organizations. A number of them have made specific commitments to partner with us by joining either our Business Champions Circle or Community Champions Circle - we are grateful for their support!

We have recently partnered with the Immigrant Welcome Center to provide resources to Maine's immigrant community about the Alfond Grant! Did you know that a baby born as a Maine resident after January 1, 2013 is eligible for the $500 Alfond Grant regardless of their parents' immigration status?
