STEM Guide Project

STEM Guide Project Offers Financial Aid to attend a STEM day camp or overnight camp. 

Children, ages 10 to 18, who are eligible to receive free and reduced lunch support or Maine Care (or whose family is facing equivalent financial  hardship) may apply if they live year round in one of MMSA's four "STEM Guide Hubs." Eligible children may receive up to $200 for a daycamp or up to $500 for an overnight camp. 

In Downeast Maine the STEM Guide Hub includes the towns of Addison, Beals, Cutler, East Machias, Harrington, Jonesboro, Jonesport, Machias, Machiasport, Millbridge, Wesley and Whiting.
