Scholarship Program

The Believe In Books Literacy Foundation (BIBLF) is seeking to reward volunteers for their dedicated community service, and their assistance in helping the Literacy Foundation to continue its goal of improving literacy throughout New Hampshire and Western Maine.

 

These scholarships aim to recognize individuals furthering their education who have volunteered their time in making programs of the Believe In Books Literacy Foundation successful, and who have truly captured the giving spirit. The BIBLF Scholarships are open to all individuals who have volunteered in any of our programs. Our volunteer opportunities include the Journey to the North Pole, Books in Character Outreach, and our 100 Acre Wood Sugar Shack Educational Center. These scholarships are intended to aid in the oncoming academic year and are used as reimbursements in the purchase of educational tools such as books, supplies, and educational software.

 

The Believe In Books Literacy Foundation has a broadening mission to enhance the quality of life through exposure, education, and the engagement of reading and bringing stories to life.
