Student scholarship



Michael Ellis of Scarborough, a second-year Southern Maine Community College student, has been awarded a $1,250 scholarship from the Maine Real Estate and Development Association (MEREDA) for study during the current academic year. Ellis will graduate next spring with a degree in architectural and engineering design. In addition to his studies, he has been working as a computer-aided design technician for a company in Portland. After graduation, he hopes to continue his education. Ellis is one of 14 Maine community college students to receive a generous scholarship from MEREDA. To qualify, students must be a Maine resident, have financial need, and be enrolled as a second-year student in a building trades, architecture, construction, engineering or business program at a Maine community college. The funds for the scholarships were raised through MEREDA’s annual “Strikes for Scholars” bowl-a-thon in May. The association’s goal is to raise enough each year to fund at least one scholarship at each of Maine’s community colleges.
