Scholarships are a major source of funding for UMaine students to supplement federal, state, and university aid. Please reach out to the Office of Student Financial Aid if you have any questions.
Scholarships are awarded based a variety of criteria including, but not limited to, things such as academic merit, achievement, alumni affiliation, financial need, or a combination of several factors. Receipt of a scholarship must be included as part of the student’s financial aid award and may, in some cases, result in adjustments to existing aid. Scholarships are considered gift aid and therefore do not have to be repaid.
