2021 COMMUNITY HARVEST SCHOLARSHIP | Deadline May 14, 2021

Community Harvest is proud to offer three $1,000 college scholarships to students living in Arundel, Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. Eligible students should be either attending high school in person, online or being homeschooled.

Community Harvest is a local organization that focuses on food sharing, fellowship and financial assistance. A common thread through all of our programs is the celebration of diversity, support for inclusion, and commitment to grass roots community building. 

“We are looking to recognize students who’ve made a significant impact on their community in one or more of these areas, says Kerry de Bree Executive Director of Community Harvest. 

“The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted high school seniors in so many ways this past year. And we need to meet the students where they are now,” explains de Bree. “We’ve expanded our definition of community impact to include efforts students may have had to make to support family and extended family.”

Students who are interested in applying for the Community Harvest scholarship can go online to communityharvestmaine.org. Applications are due by May 14, 2021.

“We are looking for students to let us know not only how volunteering has impacted their high school tenure, but how COVID has changed what they do and how they may think about community moving forward,” says de Bree.

Community Harvest is a nonprofit organization of the Kennebunks that meets the needs of its neighbors through food sharing, fellowship, and financial assistance.
For over a decade, Community Harvest has been providing support to individuals and families throughout Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, and Arundel through various “projects.”  In an effort to reach as many people as possible, our goal is to simply help others by offering community meals, emergency assistance, scholarship programs, and volunteer opportunities.
