Starting in Fall 2016, the University of Maine is pleased to announce our new financial aid program for in-state students called the Maine Matters Program. The program is made up of the Maine Matters Award, Merit Scholarships and the Maine Match. See below for requirements.
Maine Matters Award
Every in-state student admitted to the University is guaranteed $500 in either a Maine Matters Award or other merit aid (including Athletic scholarships) if they meet the eligibility requirements.
Maine Matters Awards will be offered based on an enrollment of 15 credits per semester. Maine Matters Awards will be pro-rated based on enrollment if students enroll in less than 15 credits. Students enrolling in less than 6 credits per semester will not be eligible for the Maine Matters Award.
