Hancock County Medical Mission ~ P.O. Box 241 Ellsworth ME 04605
Our mission includes experiential learning for a couple of high school students with at least two years of Spanish to provide translation and all-around help, including medical care. 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 mission experience was "life changing."
Criteria for student scholarships:
a junior or senior at a Hancock County high school (Maine)
advanced Spanish study (in 3rd year or beyond)
interest in the medical field is a plus
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Applications must be postmarked no later than Oct. 21st, or a pdf scan emailed no later than midnight Oct. 21st.
