Hancock County Medical Mission ~ P.O. Box 241 Ellsworth ME 04605
Our mission includes experiential learning for young people. Each year we choose 1-3 high school students with at least two years of Spanish to provide translation and all-around help. They typically assist with medical care as well. Their travel costs and mission fee are covered by HCMM – which comes to about $2,500.
Some scholarship recipients are now working as nurses, nurse practitioners, and doctors; others have chosen non-medical careers. All of them say their medical mission experience changed them.
The selection process begins each year in mid-September and culminates the beginning of November. Applications must be postmarked no later than Oct. 15th, or emailed no later than midnight Oct. 15th.
Criteria for student scholarships:
a junior or senior at a Hancock County high school (Maine)
