Scholarships for Older Adults

Haddie Scholarships make Community Education classes more accessible to older adults living and learning with limited income.
Apply for a $50 Haddie Scholarship for Summer 2019!

Submit your completed application by:
1) e-mailing it to with your name and "Summer Haddie" in the subject line (please double-check that all info is complete), or
2) dropping it off at a Community Education office during office hours. 
  • Any adult age 55 or older with financial need should apply!
  • If awarded, the Haddie Scholarship can be utilized for class registration for Summer 2019 ($50 scholarship).
  • Each $50 scholarship will be applied at the time of a student’s enrollment in an EC College of Marin Community Education class.* If a class costs more than $50, the student will pay the remainder of the course fee.
When to Apply: Scholarships are limited and awarded on a first come, first served basis. Apply ASAP to qualify.

*$50 scholarship cannot be applied to reimburse a student for an EC College of Marin Community Education class in which they have already enrolled.
Please note: online registration is not possible when utilizing a Haddie scholarship. Please complete registration in-person, by phone or by mail.
**Students already awarded a 2018-19 Haddie Scholarship (a value of $265) do not qualify for the additional Summer 2019 scholarship.
Haddie Scholarships are made available by the Haddie Fund, which has been made possible through the generosity of an anonymous donor. The fund provides financial support allowing a greater number of older adults to partake in Community Education ESCOM/EC courses.
