MIllyard Scholars Program
The Millyard Scholars Program provides scholarships and research opportunities to exceptional incoming students* in the biotechnology and engineering technology 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 biotechnology, electrical engineering technology or mechanical engineering technology 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.
Millyard Scholar Experience
Fusing academia with industry, the Millyard Scholars Program prepares students with the skills and experience for careers in the high-demand fields of biotechnology and engineering technology. Beginning in their first semester, Millyard Scholars will have access to:
Distinctive academic programming, like specialized First Year Seminar and a special lab section of Principles of Biology.
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 range from $3,000-$7,000. In many cases covering up to half of the tuition for NH residents.
To be considered for the Millyard Scholars Program, you must apply to UNH Manchester's biotechnology, electrical engineering technology or mechanical engineering technology program via the Common Application. Millyard Scholars typically have a high school GPA of 3.70+. The deadline to apply is April 1 for fall semester and November 15 for spring semester. Only full-time incoming freshmen are eligible.
