Scholarships & College Funding

Aroostook Aspirations Initiative (AAI) is a unique nonprofit in northern Maine that not only awards financial scholarships to students who want to attend college in Aroostook County or Thomas College in Waterville, Maine, but also provides them with programming, resources, mentoring services, and networking and internship opportunities while pursuing a post-secondary degree.
AAI works in tandem with local colleges and local businesses to help ensure that our scholars not only complete a quality college education, but make connections to local employers as they approach graduation and enter into a career. As an organization, AAI functions as a bridge to connect the youth of the County to lucrative career opportunities that are right in their own back yard.
