AUGUSTA — The University of Maine System’s Adult Degree Completion Scholarship has funds for Maine adults who want to resume their work toward a college degree this fall.

Scholarship aid combined with expanded credit transfer among Maine’s universities and community colleges, as well as prior learning credit for work experience and military service, could make the path to a college degree fast and affordable.

Approximately 200,000 adult Maine learners have invested time and money into a college education without earning a credential or college degree. The University of Maine System Adult Degree Completion Scholarship provides up to $4,000 annually to help adults with demonstrated financial need resume their course work and earn a college degree at any of Maine’s public universities.

Applications will be accepted and considered through the start of the fall 2018 semester.

Interested adults are encouraged to visit www.maine.edu/adult for application materials and additional information or call 207-621-3428 to get connected to student support specialists.

Any Maine resident who has earned at least 30 college credits toward a first baccalaureate degree and been away from class for at least three years could be eligible for financial support.

The Adult Degree Completion Scholarship, which does not need to be paid back, is awarded based on financial need and course load.
