Out-of-State First Year Students – Machias Match Scholarship

The University of Maine at Machias is pleased to offer a new scholarship program for out-of-state first year students entering in Fall 2017 called the Machias Match. The Machias Match Scholarship guarantees that academically qualified, first year students from several states will pay the same tuition and fee rate as their home state’s flagship institution. All other students entering in Fall 2017 will receive a competitive grant that will offset the non-resident tuition and fees at UMM.

Students will be awarded based a combination of their Academic Tier and Residency. Please note that any change in residency will result in the adjustment of financial aid, including scholarships. This includes any waiver program that results in non-resident students being charged the resident tuition rate, or a change between out-of-state and NEBHE status.
