MES History and Services
For over 25 years, MES Foundation (MES) provided student loan administration services, scholarship management, and college planning outreach to students and families across Maine. MES has worked tirelessly to expand access to higher education for all Maine students and to help them achieve success in their higher education goals.
In 2015, MES made the decision to discontinue loan administration, college access, and outreach activities to focus solely on providing scholarships to Maine students. This change allowed us to significantly expand our scholarship offerings. To mark our shift in focus, we officially changed our name from Maine Education Services to MES Foundation in April 2016.
MES is proud to have helped so many Maine students and families and we look forward to continued collaboration with many local schools and community organizations to help us spread the word about our valuable college scholarship opportunities.
