The University of New Hampshire is committed to making UNH accessible to all qualified New Hampshire students, and to attracting exceptional students from diverse backgrounds. To keep the best and brightest New Hampshire students in the state, the ability to offer merit-based scholarship awards and competitive financial aid packages is essential. In fall 2008, the University introduced an important and exciting new way to attract top New Hampshire students to the Durham campus: The Hamel Scholars and Scholarship program, a merit- and need-based program funded through the generosity of longtime UNH benefactor Dana A. Hamel.
