The Maine Fishermen’s Forum is pleased to announce that $52,000 in scholarships was awarded to children from Maine fishing industry families at the 49th annual Forum event held from February 29-March 2, 2024. Two scholarships were funded by an anonymous donation in the amount of $16,000, and a record breaking $36,000 was raised from a silent and live auction, along with other cash contributions. Senator Angus King drew the names of two lucky winners, Leighia Gray of Deer Isle, and Lake Lindelof of Islesboro who each received $8000.00.  All other applicants received a $1500.00 award. Forum President Hank Soule said, “We’re truly grateful for the generosity of all those who contributed to our annual scholarship fund, and we’re delighted to make these awards to children from Maine fishing families”.
