Amending decisions and changing circumstances is a natural part of life. In fact, across the country, transfer students make up anywhere from 15-40% of a school’s new undergraduate population.
Transferring often gives students another chance to establish themselves, find their crowd, and set themselves up for the best years of their lives. In such dynamic academic environments where burning out is common, it’s important to find stability and appreciation all around you.
To support the endeavors of transfer students in New England, we're partnering with the University of Southern Maine to create the USM Transfer Students of New England Scholarship.
It will be awarded to one student in any field of study who is interested in transferring to the University of Southern Maine to continue their studies!
All undergraduate students currently studying in the New England area or those who are originally from New England and looking to transfer back are eligible to apply.
The application deadline is Oct 31, 2021. Winners will be announced on Mar 1, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000. It will be awarded to 1 winner every year.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 1, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the winner’s academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements).
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
