How Trump’s deep budget cuts might affect Maine universities - Nick McCrea, BDN Staff

Maine’s public university system and its army of researchers are keeping a close eye on the federal budget after many federal agencies that support university research and projects were targeted for significant cuts under President Donald Trump’s preliminary budget. “We have been studying it,” James Page, chancellor of the University of Maine System, said Monday while addressing the UMS board of trustees. “Its impact on higher ed is extraordinary.” Page cited the possible end of the Sea Grant program, plans to strip money from the Pell Grant surplus, reduced funding for federal work studies, as well as the elimination of the national endowments for arts and humanities. https://bangordailynews.com/2017/03/27/education/how-trumps-deep-budget-cuts-might-affect-maine-universities/
