The University of Maine Retirees Harold “Brownie” Brown Scholarship Fund was established at the University of Maine Foundation in 2013 by the President’s Council of Retired Employees. In 2018 the fund was named in honor of Harold “Brownie” Brown for his outstanding volunteer service after retirement, being the first chair of the President’s Council of Retired Employees, and for playing an important role in establishing the scholarship. The fund provides financial assistance to students in good academic standing attending the University of Maine in Orono who are relatives of University of Maine retirees.
