Did you know that the University of Maine System (UMS) has scholarships available for adults returning to college?
The deadline for the fall semester is August 1, and the scholarship only takes 15 minutes to complete. More information can be found on the UMS website: http://www.maine.edu/future-students/adult-students/scholarships/adult-degree-completion-scholarship/
If you have any questions, your MEOC advisor would be happy to help!
