Community | Aroostook County, Maine

Community involvement is integral to our organization's success. We believe that by engaging community members in our efforts, we can greatly increase our capacity to work towards our goals of degree attainment and job growth as well as reversing outward migration.

AAI hosts several events throughout the year. You can show your support by attending our events for our scholars.

[AAI] helps graduating Aroostook high school seniors desiring a postsecondary education by directly addressing the dual issues of cost and access. Each graduating senior can receive a scholarship at any of the county's four colleges, and research indicates that a significant percentage of students will stay within the geographic area where they completed their degree. This is a wonderful initiative for northern Maine.
