Election Engagement mini-grants available to students, staff

The University of Maine Political Science Department and UMaine UVote are partnering to offer mini-grants of as much as $500 to support nonpartisan activities intended to raise awareness about voting and the November election. 

Election Engagement mini-grants are available to all members of the UMaine community, with applications accepted online on a rolling basis until program funds are expended. Applicants proposing on-campus activities must submit an event planning form to obtain approval for in-person events before grant funds are disbursed. 

Projects will be funded, in part, with financial support from the Students Learn Students Vote Coalition and the Ask Every Student program. 

For more information, contact Robert Glover, associate professor of political science and Honors, robert.glover@maine.edu; or Jenny Desmond, leadership development coordinator and UMaine UVote chair, jennifer.desmond@maine.edu.
