Hannaford Teacher Renewal Scholarship Program
The Hannaford Teacher Renewal Scholarship Fund was established in the University of Maine System in 1990 by a gift from the Hannaford Brothers Corporation, and expanded in 2001. The income from the fund is used for two Hannaford Scholarship Programs, the Hannaford Scholar and the Hannaford Scholar Leader. Applicants for both programs must be currently practicing, certified (including transitional and conditional) teachers in K-12 classrooms in Maine, with significant teaching responsibilities in the areas of mathematics, science or foreign language.

In their proposals, applicants must establish the relevance of the proposed activity to their research and persuasively explain to the committee how assistance would enrich their study and professional growth.

Susan Hathaway Glines Scholarship
The Susan Hathaway Glines Scholarship was made possible through a generous donation by Ms. Glines to the University of Maine Foundation. An alumna of UMaine and an educator who served Maine’s Oxford County for many years, Ms. Glines hopes to provide funding to one graduate student who lives and teaches in Oxford County for full- or part-time study in the UMaine College of Education and Human Development. This renewable award may be used for tuition, fees, books and related materials, and necessary equipment such as a computer or tablet. These funds may also be used to cover relevant training and professional development costs (e.g., conference travel and lodging). The scholarship is restricted to educators that reside and teach in Oxford County. For more information, click here.
