PORTLAND, Maine — The New England Board of Higher Education is honoring a Maine program that targets high school students who are undecided about higher education but who have the potential to succeed in college.

The board says Early College for ME will be awarded its Maine State Merit Award at the 10th annual New England Higher Education Excellence Awards on March 2 in Boston.

Early College for ME serves more than 1,700 high school students a year, providing support and guidance throughout the college planning process.

Students also get to take up to two community college courses during their senior year, and scholarships of up to $2,000 to the community colleges.
