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.

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.
