A historic investment by the Harold Alfond Foundation

The University of Maine Graduate & Professional Center is honored to be a part of the historic $240 million grant investment in Maine’s public higher education system, announced on October 6th by the Harold Alfond Foundation. This investment in the University of Maine System is the 8th largest gift ever made to a U.S. public institution of higher education and the largest ever to a public institution of higher education in New England. The transformative $55 million grant specifically made to the Maine Center will enable us to deliver on the vision to prepare leaders to solve the state’s most pressing challenges and chart a new future for Maine’s workforce and Maine’s economy.

This summer, thousands of summer internships across the country were cancelled due to COVID-19. Thanks to an anonymous donor, things looked a little different here in Maine. 23 graduate students pursuing advanced degrees in law, business, policy, planning, management, and public health became the inaugural cohort of the Maine Center Graduate Internship Program.
