AUGUSTA — Recognizing diversity is an essential element of academic excellence, the University of Maine at Augusta (UMA) is offering equity and inclusion scholarships to students whose academic achievement and varied experiences will enhance and enrich the education of all UMA students and the institution’s educational mission.

Equity and inclusion scholars may receive up to four years of funding, provided they continuously enroll each fall and spring semester in either full- or part-time study in a graduate or undergraduate program and maintain the minimum GPA requirements of the scholarship.

Scholarship funds may be used to cover education-related expenses, including tuition and fees. UMA anticipates awarding two graduate and five undergraduate scholarships each year. The application deadline is Monday, March 15, and scholarships will be awarded beginning fall 2021. For details and to complete the application, visit uma.edu/eischolarship.
