Scholarship Program

Every year cPort staff look forward to reading college aspiration essays from students in the communities we serve. In 2022, we kicked off our 15th year of the cPort Scholarship Program. Hosting our college aspiration workshops in seven elementary schools throughout Portland, Augusta, and Scarborough, we also celebrated our first year at the Boys & Girls Club of Kennebec Valley (BGCKV).

cPort staff helped to read just under 700 essays and selected over 100 scholarship recipients. Since our start in 2008 at Riverton Elementary School, cPort has given out 1,200 scholarships to deserving students in the community. That’s over $120,000 awarded with the goal to begin the conversation early about aspirations after high school!

We thank each and every school, after-school program, teacher, principal, BGCKV staff member, parent, guardian, and friend of the program for making this another successful year. We are extremely grateful that each school made the time to help influence and promote the aspirations of these students at such an early age. This program is the heart of cPort and we are so grateful we get to continue it for another 15 years or more!
