Margaret Chase Smith Library Research Scholarships

The Margaret Chase Smith Research Scholarship provides financial support for up to two University of Maine undergraduate or graduate students to utilize the archival or museum collections of the Margaret Chase Smith Library in Skowhegan, Maine.

Students are required to engage in research activities during the academic year with research being completed by the end of the spring semester.

The Margaret Chase Smith Library is an archive, museum, educational facility, and public policy center devoted to preserving the legacy of Margaret Chase Smith, promoting research into American political history, advancing the ideals of public service, and exploring issues of civic engagement. The library houses the political papers, documents, honors, photographs, and memorabilia stemming from the thirty-two year congressional career of the former United States Senator.
