As a UMF graduate, you already know Farmington is all about family. We honor your UMF connection with our new Farmington is Family Scholarship.

The Farmington is Family Scholarship offers Maine’s low in-state tuition rates and scholarships to college-bound children and grandchildren of UMF graduates who reside out-of-state.

These out-of-state legacy students — with at least one parent or grandparent who obtained a degree from UMF — can attend UMF for our low in-state tuition — approximately $9,000 per year. That represents savings of more than $10,000 annually and more than $43,000 over your child or grandchild’s four years at UMF.

In addition, children and grandchildren of UMF alumni living outside of Maine are also eligible for any merit awards available to qualified applicants.

This alumni tuition discount will be available for all incoming and returning students, as well as transfers, beginning in fall 2019.

UMF accepts the Common Application, and there’s no application fee. We encourage students interested in this program to apply before April 15.

If you have questions about the Farmington is Family Scholarship or applying to UMF, please contact the Office of Admission at or 207-778-7050.
