About the Foundation
Worthington Scholarship Foundation (WSF) was founded on the belief that when it comes to higher education, hard work and character should matter more than finances or GPA. Our founders, Beverly and David Worthington, were inspired by the tenacity of Maine students and made it their mission to empower a new generation of Mainers to access post-secondary education through scholarships tailored for them. WSF isn’t just a scholarship foundation; it’s also a resource, preparing Maine students to navigate through life well beyond long after they’ve finished their degrees and certificates.
