NEW YORK, NY. March 21, 2018 – Novatus Energy announced today multiple scholarship opportunities for graduating high school seniors residing in the locales of its three Maine wind projects ̶ Bingham (Somerset and Piscataquis Counties), Oakfield (Aroostook County) and Hancock (Hancock County). Up to eight scholarships totaling $16,000 are available for students at Piscataquis Central High School, Valley High School, Houlton Senior High School, and Southern Aroostook Community School, and up to four scholarships totaling $6,000 for students at Sumner High School and Narraguagus High School. Scholarships are to be used for higher education expenses.
Finalists will be selected by the staff and administration of the respective schools based on academic record, recommendations, participation in school activities, and interest for safeguarding the environment or supporting the community. Parents and students interested in applying should contact the guidance office of their school.
Steve Doyon, CEO of Novatus Energy, commented, “Supporting and investing in our local communities is a major priority for Novatus Energy. There is no better way to invest in the future of our host communities than investing in the future of its youth. The cost of a college education continues to rise and is a barrier for some. We hope these scholarships will assist local students in achieving their goals and dreams.”
