2018 SCOPE Grant Application Is Open

The Wilson Center is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our 2018 SCOPE Community Service & Social Justice grants program. The mission of the Wilson Center’s SCOPE (Student Community Outreach Program Experience) grants is to provide opportunities for students at the University of Maine to explore their values, to act on their concerns, and to build human connections through programs that are designed and led by students. The SCOPE grants are given in honor of Rev. Elizabeth Morris, chaplain of the Wilson Center from 1990-1993.

Recent projects led by winners of our SCOPE grants include education of forest resources through the lens of Native American traditions and knowledge, cultural diversity and family literacy, and perceptions of home in light of the worldwide refugee crisis.

University of Maine undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to submit an application. The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2018. Details and the full application can be found at the link below.
