University of Maine Flagship Match Program
The deal: Out-of-state students pay the same tuition and fees as in-state students from certain states.
The Flagship Match Program is a scholarship program that guarantees academically qualified, first-year students from several nearly states will pay the same tuition and fee rate as their home state's flagship institution.
The Flagship Match award is renewable for up to 4 years provided renewal criteria are met each semester.
Eligible students have home residency in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. They pay the tuition cost and fees at the University of Maine that they would have paid their state's public university.
All other students entering in fall 2016 will receive a "competitive" grant that will offset the cost of non-resident tuition and fees at the University of Maine, the university's website says.
