To all our alumni and friends:
The School of Policy and International Affairs (SPIA) at the University of Maine relies on private support for scholarships, student group support, and outreach activities. These gifts enhance the program and improve the quality of students. Your support of SPIA makes a difference in the lives of our students and in the ability of the school to pursue international opportunities. Each gift, regardless of size, is leveraged by all of the gifts that are received each year. Student demand for international affairs programs continues to grow, and we strive to provide funding to students for internships and challenging international experiences that lead to more knowledgeable, globally engaged citizens. Private giving is more important than ever as it enables SPIA to continue improving upon its reputation regionally, nationally, and internationally.
It is also possible to give to the SPIA through the University’s Annual Appeal. It can be found by clicking here. You select a specific designation for your gift, it is shown as SPIA School of Policy & International Affairs in the giving options brochure and on the form.
