AUBURN — Jason Bryant of Buckfield, a second-year student at Central Maine Community College, has been awarded a $1,450 scholarship from the Maine Real Estate & Development Association for study during the current academic year.

Bryant, an honor student in the business administration and management program at CMCC, is one of eight Maine community college students to receive a scholarship from MEREDA.

This is the third year the organization has provided scholarships for college students in Maine. To qualify for the MEREDA scholarship, students must be a Maine resident, have financial need and be enrolled as a second-year student in the building trades, architecture, construction, engineering or business program at a Maine community college.

The association’s goal is to raise enough money each year to fund at least one scholarship at each of Maine’s community colleges and support Maine students as they prepare for careers in areas of study that promote MEREDA’s mission of responsible development and ownership of real estate throughout the state.

“MEREDA is pleased to be helping to meet the financial needs of students at the seven campuses of the Maine Community College System statewide,” said Mike O’Reilly of Bangor Savings Bank, the current MEREDA president. “Providing scholarships to students who hope to get into real estate-related fields contributes to the mission of MEREDA, which is supporting responsible real estate development.”
