On Thursday, 11/21, twenty-two BAHS seniors were either accepted or offered a ‘conditional acceptance’ to the University of Maine in Orono.  Students who apply Early Action (by November 30th) qualify for merit scholarship money plus an early incentive bonus of $1,500.  All 22 students earned the early incentive bonus (total of $33,000), assuming their application is complete by the deadline. Each of our students earned a Merit Scholarship, and three of our students were offered the Presidential Merit Award of $8,000 each.  A total of $60,000 in scholarship money was offered to our students!

Merit scholarships are rewards based on high grades and strong SAT or ACT scores of each individual student. The other parts of a student’s financial aid offer are based on each student’s financial need as reflected by the FAFSA.
