William Bingham Scholarship

For many Maine alumni, the ability to afford tuition once seemed unlikely, putting a Gould education far out of reach. Enter the William Bingham scholarship which, for over 30 years, has given Maine students the opportunity to attend Gould. These alumni have some amazing stories to tell, and three of them share their gratitude in the following letters to the philanthropic organization, The Betterment Fund, which endowed the ‘Bingham Scholarship’ in 1996, sustaining it for years to come.

    Growing up, I was often the only student of color in my class, my grade, or even my school. I lived in a small, one traffic light town and had had a happy childhood; I had loving parents and spirited siblings.

    Before I came to Gould Academy my world was small. I grew up in a small, northern Maine town. I associated with a small group of people. I went to a small school, play sports on a small team, and travel small distances. I've been told the world was big, but didn't really know it. The big world was inaccessible, far out of my reality.

    On the first visit to Gould from Caratunk, my rural hometown in northwestern Maine, I knew within minutes of arriving that it was where I wanted to be. I'm not big on premonition but as soon as Dad and I drove onto campus, I just had a funny feeling that this place was perfect.
