The Millyard Scholars Program provides scholarships and research opportunities to exceptional incoming students* in the biotechnology, engineering technology, biological sciences and computing programs at the University of New Hampshire's Manchester campus. In this four-year program, Millyard Scholars will have access to distinctive seminar classes, research projects and internship opportunities while earning their UNH degree in the heart of Manchester. This program is coupled with the mission of the Manchester-based Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI), which is creating an industry to regenerate human tissue and organs right down the street from our campus.
* Only full-time incoming freshmen in UNH Manchester’s analytics and data science, biotechnology, biological sciences, electrical engineering technology, computer information systems, computer science and mechanical engineering technology programs are eligible.
Millyard Scholar Experience
Fusing academia with industry, the Millyard Scholars Program prepares students with the skills and experience for careers in the high-demand field of biotechnology—a field rich with opportunity for scientists, engineers, biologists and more. Beginning in their first semester, Millyard Scholars have access to:
Distinctive academic programming in which you'll develop skills for success in any industry
Research projects in cutting-edge cell and tissue culture, regenerative medicine and microbiology laboratories
Internship opportunities with ARMI and other start-up biotechnology firms, which are creating an industry to regenerate human tissue and organs for wounded soldiers and transplant patients
Scholarship awards ranging from $3,000-$15,000, which can cover up to half of tuition for New Hampshire residents
On-site internship and research opportunities
We’ve transformed our sixth floor into the Biotechnology Innovation Center, a facility for teaching and research in the areas of biotechnology and cellular biology. Millyard Scholars get hands-on experience in state-of-the-art labs—and opportunities for on-site internships and research with start-up biotech firms.
Our student-focused culture helps you to articulate values, skills, strengths and experiences to foster your professional growth and emotional intelligence.
You’ll learn to articulate thoughts, ideas and solutions through collaborative projects.
