MIllyard Scholars Program
The Millyard Scholars Program provides scholarships and research opportunities to exceptional incoming students* in the biotechnology program 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 biotechnology 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. UNH Manchester has dedicated its entire sixth floor to teaching and research facilities in the areas of bioengineering and cellular biology so that Millyard Scholars graduate ARMI workforce-ready.
