ME panel objects to cutting doctor scholarships



A legislative panel objected Thursday to cutting $125,000 from a scholarship fund that covers half of medical school tuition for eligible Maine students. Gov. Paul LePage's supplemental budget -- designed to balance state spending through June 30 -- proposed cutting that amount from the Doctors for Maine's Future scholarship fund. The Education Committee said Thursday that it prefers to find comparable cuts elsewhere. The Doctors for Maine's Future scholarship funded its first class of medical students during the 2009-10 academic year. The program, administered by the Finance Authority of Maine, provides students half of their tuition, up to $25,000.
