Margaret Chase Smith Public Affairs Scholarship

Each spring the MCS Public Affairs Scholarship is awarded to one or two UMaine undergraduates who propose an independent research project on a public policy topic relevant to Maine. Applicants must have a faculty advisor for the project at the time of application. Scholarship students apply in March and work with a faculty advisor throughout the following academic year to conduct their research. The students then present their work in the spring at the UMaine Student Research Symposium.

The amount of the scholarship is $3,500 ($1,750 Fall/$1,750 Spring) per academic year. See the application link below for more information.

The application deadline is March 27, 2023.
