The University of Maine Alumni Association’s annual tuition raffle is underway!
One lucky winner will receive full tuition to cover 30 credit hours of undergraduate courses during the 2019-2020 academic year. The value of the selected ticket is $8,790, the cost of in-state tuition. The winner can use the prize to benefit a favorite UMaine undergraduate – a family member, a friend’s child, a stranger in need, or even him or herself!
The 2018-2019 tuition recipient, Raeann Berry ’20 of Southold, NY, reflects on her win last year: “The $8,000 really meant a lot for me. Being an out-of-state student, finances can get kind of tough sometimes, so when I had that extra money come in it was really nice and helped a lot.”
Anyone 18 years of age or older can enter. The Alumni Association suggests a $5-per-ticket contribution to help continue this popular program.
