A Tribute to Maine Veterans
Education Equals Opportunity | The Boulos Family

The Boulos Family Scholarship was created to recognize and thank the men and women of Maine who served their country in the armed forces in Iraq or Afghanistan during the post-September 11 conflicts. These veterans have endured the perils of war as well as the hardships it creates at home—extended separation from family and loved ones, their communities and their jobs.

Joe and Sheri Boulos believe that each returning Maine veteran deserves the opportunity to secure a promising future through a college education. To this end they have pledged $1,000,000 in scholarship aid for these Maine veterans.

Education Equals Opportunity

As Chair of the Maine Compact for Higher Education, Joe Boulos knows first hand that a college education is key to success in Maine’s rapidly transforming economy. Now more than ever, job opportunities in Maine demand the leadership, technical, and critical thinking skills a college education provides. A college education holds the best promise for individuals to achieve their ambitions and earn a living that allows them to prosper in Maine. The Boulos Family Scholarship will provide a gateway for Maine veterans to reach their goals and aspirations, for themselves and their families.
