Ensuring Educational Opportunities

Husson has long been committed to affordable and accessible education. We have worked to ensure that the University is efficient and nimble. Our dedication to value has resulted in affordable educational opportunities for students.
Between 30 and 40 percent of our students are the first generation of their family to go to college. Perhaps most significantly, one out of every eight students who attend Husson comes from a household with family incomes of under $25,000 a year.

To put this in context, 48 percent of Husson University students are Pell Grant eligible. That means that nearly half of the students who attend Husson qualify to receive need based financial assistance from the U.S. government to help pay for college.

To help students achieve their full potential, Husson must financially assist those students who cannot realize their dreams of a better future without an education.

To recruit and retain students, from Maine and around the world, Husson must be able to provide financial assistance in the form of “need based” and “merit based” scholarships.

The campaign is seeking $8,000,000 for endowed student financial aid.
