University of Southern Maine Scholarships

Did you know that USM has over $1.2 million in academic and other scholarships to be awarded for the 2014-2015 year?

As a student, you have the opportunity to apply for many of these. Other scholarship selections will be made by faculty recommendation.

Select the appropriate College or school link for your major or intended major to review various scholarship options and application instructions. Don't forget, there are scholarships for children of parental employers or for descendants of certain families listed under Affiliation.

We strongly encourage you to take some time to review the various scholarships. Again, over $1.2 million will be awarded to assist USM students in paying their USM bills in the next school year.
