CHARLOTTE – UNC Charlotte has launched a scholarship in honor of Ellis “Reed” Parlier, one of two students killed in a mass shooting April 30 at UNC Charlotte.
Students can apply for the Ellis “Reed” Parlier Memorial Scholarship through Feb. 15, 2020. UNCC estimates the typical award will be $1,500, depending on available funding. An anonymous donor and friends of the family contributed money to establish the scholarship.
Graduates from the Central Academy of Technology and Arts in Monroe will have first preference for the award. That’s where Parlier graduated from in 2017.
Students must also have a GPA of at least 3.0 with preference given to students planning to pursue a bachelor’s degree in computer science with a concentration in artificial intelligence, robotics or gaming.
