Annual UMaine tuition raffle is underway

Mar 29, 2019

Orono — The UMaine Alumni Association has launched its annual tuition raffle, which will pay at least $8,790 to cover the prize recipient’s tuition at UMaine Orono for the the 2019-20 academic year. The raffle's prize will be the equivalent of 30 credit hours at the university’s in-state undergraduate tuition rate. Anyone 18 years of age or older can participate in the raffle and can designate the UMaine student they would like to receive the prize.

The Alumni Association suggests a donation of $5 per ticket. Net proceeds from the raffle will be used to help support the organization’s programs on behalf of students and alumni. Out-of-state students and graduate students are also eligible to receive the prize, with the dollar value of 30 in-state undergraduate credit hours applied toward their total tuition bill.

Tickets submitted by mail must be postmarked no later than May 1. Tickets hand-delivered to UMaine’s Buchanan Alumni House in Orono must be received by 4:30 p.m. May 6. The drawing will take place May 7 at noon the Alumni House and will be livestreamed on Facebook. The winner will be contacted immediately afterward.

Details and raffle ticket requests may be found at or by contacting Erica Sturrock at 581-1138.
