Research learning experiences at UMaine


Cherish this moment. The moment when you dared to dream. To be the first to know something profound. Something humbling. To push the boundaries of possibility and unravel the mysteries of the unknown. Remember this—the moment you set forth on the grand journey; the journey of self-discovery. 

The Research Learning Experience at the University of Maine was created to provide you with these moments at the start of your college adventure.

Thanks to the generosity of the Harold Alfond Foundation and other donors, you will have a chance as a new UMaine Black Bear to enrich your first year in college with faculty-mentored experiences that create new knowledge, design new art, and discover original solutions. The only question is, what will you be the first to know?
