UMF President and Sen. George Mitchell Honor Past and Present Mitchell Scholars
UMF president Kathryn A. Foster was recently joined by Senator George J. Mitchell and Mitchell Institute Scholarship Director Jared Cash at a dinner on the UMF campus to honor current and former UMF recipients of the Senator’s Mitchell Institute Scholarship. Mitchell Scholars are selected for their academic promise, history of community service and financial need. As reported in the Bangor Daily News, UMF has 36 Mitchell Scholars currently enrolled and more than 120 Mitchell Scholar alumni—giving UMF the highest number of student scholars, per capita, of any Maine school, according to Cash.
