Additional Scholarship Resources

Patriot Education Scholarship

In 2007, Patriot Mutual Holding Company merged into Frankenmuth Mutual Insurance Company, with Frankenmuth being the surviving company and owner of Patriot’s two wholly owned subsidiaries, Patriot Insurance Company and Patriot Life Insurance Company, both Maine-domiciled companies at that time. Frankenmuth, founded on the tradition of neighbor helping neighbor, is committed to supporting graduates of Maine high schools pursuing a degree in business at a college or university in Maine, and, to that end, has established the Patriot Education Scholarship Fund at the Maine Community Foundation.

Eligible students are graduates of a Maine high school who are currently enrolled in a college or university in Maine pursuing a degree in business as a full-time student. Preference is given to applicants who have a demonstrated interest in personal and commercial insurance professions.
