BioME funds four scholarships for middle schoolers to attend the Maine School of Science and Mathematics summer camp

We are excited to announce that Bioscience Association of Maine is awarding four scholarships to Maine middle school students. These enthusiastic students will attend a 1-week-long summer science camp at the Maine School of Science and Mathematics (MSSM). All 4 awardees attend a school that participated in ME Bioscience Day 2020. The goal of the MSSM Summer Science Camp Scholarship and ME Bioscience Day is to get students excited about science, while also bringing awareness to the career opportunities within Maine life sciences industry.

About ME Bioscience Day

ME Bioscience Day is a statewide event that focuses on educating Maine’s youth about different career paths and opportunities within the life sciences industry in Maine. Typically, professionals in these fields volunteer to visit local middle school classrooms to talk with students about their career in science, their daily tasks, and the opportunities that are available in such careers. In 2020, ME Bioscience Day was held virtually, allowing us to expand our reach to over 5,100 students from 46 middle schools across Maine. Students that attended any of these 46 schools were eligible to apply for the MSSM Summer Science Camp Scholarship.
