The Mitchell Institute’s scholarship research documents the college and career experiences of our Scholars, provides evidence of Scholars’ success, and evaluates our programs and events to ensure that Mitchell Scholars and Alumni receive effective support.

Our research on Mitchell Scholars demonstrates that our methods work: 88% of Mitchell Scholars achieve a post-secondary degree, compared with 58% of their peers.

More information about the Mitchell Institute’s research findings, current and historical, and how they support our programs, can be found on the following pages: Maine education topics, and Mitchell Scholar & Alumni Study.
