The Gauvin County Scholarship Fund of Aroostook Aspirations Initiative was launched in April, 2014, by Ray and Sandy Gauvin and Jason Parent, life-long residents of Aroostook County, Maine. The Gauvin Fund and its allies are dedicated to helping the young people of Aroostook County, Maine, realize their dreams of 1) attending college and maintaining a successful career, 2) stemming the outmigration of youth from The County, and 3) giving a much-needed boost to the economy of Northern Maine.
The organization strives to educate students about the opportunities available to them right here in Aroostook County, Maine. AAI has worked extensively with businesses, superintendents, principals, guidance directors, and teachers to ensure that all students are aware of these opportunities. Each year, Aroostook Aspirations awards college scholarships to students across The County to help them pay for college expenses. In addition, AAI has created several support programs to ensure successful college completion for the scholars.
Aroostook Aspirations is dedicated to the education, inspiration, and leadership of future generations of Aroostook County youth, especially students who are at risk for completing a college education.
AAI is always looking to grow our network and provide opportunities for people within the community to get involved, as well.
