Many of us at Facing Maine know just how many challenges children born with cleft or craniofacial differences have growing up.
The annual Facing Maine Scholarship Program was established to recognize the resilience, strength, and achievements, of a Maine high school Senior, who has a cleft or craniofacial condition.
In celebration of what they have overcome, including, their hard work in school, outstanding personality and abilities, and dedication to community, we are offering an annual $250 award.
Do you know of someone in your community who is eligible?
