Mountains to the Sea Scholarship

Description

In recognition of the strong connections with our neighbors in the mountain states of New Hampshire and Vermont, the University of Southern Maine is pleased to offer the Mountains to the Sea Scholarship, which allows every academically qualified student from New Hampshire and Vermont to attend USM for less than the cost of in-state tuition in their home states.

This scholarship will be available for students applying for Fall 2017.
