The Hannaford Teacher Renewal Scholarship Fund was established in the University of Maine System in 1990 by a gift from the Hannaford Brothers Corporation, and expanded in 2001. The income from the fund is used for two Hannaford Scholarship Programs, the Hannaford Scholar and the Hannaford Scholar Leader.

Applicants for both programs must be currently practicing, certified (including transitional and conditional) teachers in K-12 classrooms in Maine, with significant teaching responsibilities in the areas of mathematics, science or foreign language.

Selection of recipients will be made by representatives of the University of Maine System, and will be based upon quality of application, relevance of proposed coursework to teaching responsibilities in math, science or foreign language, and potential for enhanced teaching effectiveness as a result of course completion.

In the case of the Hannaford Scholar Leader, the feasibility and potential impact of proposed leadership activities will be considered as well. In choosing between candidates of similar qualifications, first-time applications will be given preference.
