Maine Press Association awards $4K in scholarships

The Maine Press Association is awarding $4,000 in scholarships to three journalism students for the spring semester.

 Recipients of 2021 scholarships are Jack Allsopp, of Old Orchard Beach, a senior at the University of New England and editor-in-chief of The Bolt; Michael Corrado, of Medford, Mass., a senior at the University of Maine and contributor to Guy Boston Sports; and Bhavana Scalia-Bruce, of Portland, a senior at the University of Maine and business manager of the Maine Campus.

 The Maine Press Association awards at least one scholarship every year to a junior or senior with financial need who plans to pursue a career in journalism. The scholarships are possible through the generosity of bidders at the Maine Press Association’s annual scholarship auction and the donors who provide the auction items.
