MAINE STUDENTS EARN HOLLINGS SCHOLARSHIPS Two University of Maine sophomores have received the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Ernest F. Hollings Undergraduate Scholarship. Samantha Bond, a marine science major, zoology minor and
honors student from Temple, N.H., and Jeremy Bender, a marine science major and honors student from Saint Paul, Minn., each will receive up to $8,000 per year for their junior and senior years. In addition, they will each have a summer internship at
a NOAA facility. "This has opened my eyes about what I want to do after I finish my undergraduate degree," Bond says. A news release with more is at http://www.umaine.edu/news/view_release.php?x=1241009614.
