The University of Maine System offers Osher New Beginnings Scholarships to encourage Maine people of all ages to try college. University College at Rockland is now accepting new scholarship requests for fall 2017. The Osher New Beginnings Scholarship covers one college course, including tuition, fees, books, and required materials – there is no catch! The school wants to give everyone the chance to start down that new path without worrying about paying for a course just to give something a try.
One may qualify for an Osher New Beginnings Scholarship if one:
- is a Maine resident
- has earned a high school diploma or the equivalent
- is a first-time student or has not attended college in at least three years
- has 30 or fewer credit hours
- will commit to completing a college course
Eligible courses are available at all University of Maine System campuses and at University College centers. Interested students must complete the Osher New Beginnings Scholarship request form with the help of an advisor at University College at Rockland.
