Jack Eagleson Scholarship


The Jack Eagleson Scholarship was established at the University of Southern Maine in 2013 by the  Eagleson Institute, a non-profit foundation in memory of Jack M. Eagleson, Jr.

The scholarship is intended for deserving students who have an academic, research and/or service interest in environmental safety and health, and who are enrolled in a degree program within the College of Science, Technology and Health (CSTH) that would allow them to pursue that interest.


Eligible students must be a Maine resident with preference given to those interested in environmental safety and health, who are enrolled in a degree program within CSTH. Incoming first year students must have demonstrated financial need, and be enrolled full-time. Transfer students with a GPA of 3.0 are eligible for consideration.

Award Amount

$2,000, renewable for up to 3 years.

How to Renew
