Give to International Programs
The Office of International Programs welcomes gifts from alumni and other members of the community who wish to support students who are served by OIP and quality programs that help to create a diverse and inclusive environment for our campus and the surrounding communities. Please consider giving to one of the following funds.
Karen Boucias International Scholarship Fund
This endowed fund was established at the University of Maine Foundation in 2018, in honor of Ms. Karen Boucias, who directed for seventeen years the University of Maine Office of International Programs. The fund will be used to provide financial support for undergraduate international students who demonstrate academic achievement.
University of Maine International Programming Fund
This endowed fund was created in 2014 by an alumnus in honor of the 10th annual International Dance Festival. When our goal of $10,000 is reached, funds generated by this account will be used to continue providing quality international programming such as Culturefest and the International Dance Festival.

University of Maine International Studies
Donations to this account will be used for the immediate support of UMaine students studying abroad.
