  • Financial aid opens the door to higher education for 85% of students at the University of Southern Maine. But there are many aspiring students who aren't eligible to receive federal aid, making college a distant dream. To help these deserving students — asylum seekers, new Mainers and international students — overcome financial barriers, the USM Foundation created the Access to Education Scholarship.

    Now MEMIC, one of USM's leading employer partners, has issued a $20,000 challenge to support the Access to Education Scholarship. During the month of April, MEMIC will match contributions one-to-one up to $20,000, unlocking the company's $20,000 donation to the scholarship fund.
