Since 1962, when the first small scholarship was presented, the Maine Business and Professional Women have been helping Maine women achieve economic self-sufficiency by awarding scholarships to outstanding and deserving women.

It is with great gratitude and humility that I write in appreciation of your generous gift of the $1200 Kennebec Savings Bank Scholarship towards my nursing education.
