Applications Open for the University of Maine Intermedia MFA & PHD programs

We have exciting news for potential Intermedia MFA Program graduate students. The Regional Graduate Scholarship builds upon UMaine’s commitment to affordability and creates a pathway for academically-talented students to access graduate education. With the Regional Graduate Scholarship, new students from VT, RI, NJ, MA, CT, NH, and PA accepted into the MFA Program are automatically given an out-of-state tuition reduction from $1,361/credit hour to $650/ credit hour.

That means a saving of over $42,000 for the full degree program!

This program, coupled with additional available grants, scholarships, teaching and research assistantships, makes attending the University of Maine one of the most affordable programs in the nation. Beyond affordability the Intermedia MFA is a highly individualized, interdisciplinary program that offers 24 hour access to cutting edge technologies in a new building, exhibition and publishing opportunities, dynamic visiting artist programs, and a nurturing environment and faculty that will help any creative practitioner reinvent and/or expand their work.

Applications received by February 15th will be eligible for the Regional Graduate Scholarship as well as other funding opportunities. If you are able, we welcome you to contact us to speak with us about your interests in Intermedia and to schedule a tour of our program and facilities.
