University of Maine Adult Degree Completion Scholarship [Lawrence Adult Education]

University of Maine Adult Degree Completion Scholarship

Maine adults who want to return to college may qualify for as much as $4,000 per year in scholarships for up to four years with the Adult Degree Completion Scholarship Fund started this past year by the University of Maine System.

The System’s find aims to help Maine people complete their academic studies—many adults started their university education years ago, but did not complete a degree program for some reason, likely due to family or work obligations.

The scholarships are for adult students returning to a University of Maine System institution after an absence of three years or more, and who are completing their very first baccalaureate degree. Courses may be taken at any of the seven universities in Maine.

“Maine has over 200,000 adults with some college, but no degree,” explained UMS Chancellor James H. Page. “That is a significant stranded cost—both in terms of monies invested and opportunities lost.

Our goal is to work with these folks to help them achieve their educational goals and move Maine forward.”

Those adults returning to a university will be in good company. At the University of Maine System, adult students age 25 or older currently represent more than 36% of all students enrolled in degree programs and more than 60% of those attending part-time.

Currently there are very few scholarships or other forms of financial aid available in Maine for adults, especially those who work full-time.

“One of the many challenges adults face as they return to college is financing their education,” noted Rosa Redonnett, UMS Chief Student Affairs Officer. “Since our goal is degree completion, we’ve set up a tiered scholarship program so Mainers who have previously earned a significant number of credits are incentivized to quickly complete their degrees. And we are also providing smaller scholarships for those who have completed a handful of courses toward a degree, but want to finish that work.”

In addition, a new “concierge” service has been established to guide students to assist adult students, in the same way that the hospitality industry has concierges to help guide guests to explore a new area. The university concierges, based in 15 Maine communities, will help adult students achieve their educational goals through activities such as applying to a university, choosing a major, finding financial assistance, and registering for courses.

“Unlike traditional age students, most adults are also balancing work, family, and other commitments,” said Bonnie Newsom of Eddington, a member of the UMS Board of Trustees who also serves on the Adult Baccalaureate Completion Distance Education (ABCDE) committee. “As a result, financial help and the assistance of a concierge may mean the difference between finishing that degree—or not.”

Newsom added that the scholarship fund and concierge service are part of a larger, statewide adult degree completion effort under way at the System.

The ABCDE committee was created as a result of a Board of Trustees directive in 2012 to develop and implement a System-wide plan to enhance baccalaureate degree attainment and completion by Maine's adult and non-campus based citizens. Efforts under way will incorporate consideration of the multiple pathways that students may follow such as certificates, associate degrees, and prior learning assessment.

Applications for Fall 2015 are currently being accepted and will be reviewed after the deadline of 1 August 2015. The online application may be found here. Applicants must meet the following criteria in order to qualify for the scholarship:

 

  • · Must be a resident of the state of Maine.
  • · Must be a matriculated student at a UMS institution seeking a first baccalaureate degree.
  • · Must be an undergraduate reentry student who has experienced a gap (three years or more) in the pursuit of postsecondary education. (Students who returned to higher education beginning in Spring 2015 or more recently will be considered).
  • · Must have previously earned a minimum of 30 credits from any institution.
  • · Must demonstrate financial need as determined by a completed FAFSA.
  • · Must be registered at least part time: 6‐8 credits per semester.

 

Established in 1968, the University of Maine System is the state’s largest educational enterprise. It has an annual enrollment of nearly 40,000 students and serves over 500,000 individuals annually through educational and cultural offerings. Two-thirds of its alumni—approximately 120,000 people—live in Maine. The University of Maine System features seven universities—some with multiple campuses—located across the state, as well as eight University College outreach centers, a law school, and an additional 31 course sites.

Dr. Donna Beegle - Opportunity Conference [Crooked River Adult Education / Fryeburg Area Adult Education]

Dr. Donna Beegle to speak at the "Opportunity Conference" in Bridgton in July!

On Friday, July 24th, local organizations are coming together to host an Opportunity Conference in Bridgton.  The Opportunity Communities model provides guidance with implementing a community wide approach called the "Opportunity Community".  The process bridges the gap between social service operations and the people who need them by creating a system where everyone is working together, and people in poverty are given opportunities to realize their strengths and reach their potential for moving forward.  When communities come together to harness the value of everyone, lives are changed forever. For more information on this conference please check here.

To register for this class check here.
