Resources for Parents

Parents of Meyerhoff Scholars continue to play an integral part in their student’s success even after acceptance into the program. The program’s family-like environment creates a campus-based support system that is available to students and parents alike. Meyerhoff staff members are just a phone call or email away. Parents remain actively engaged in the success of their student throughout his/her tenure at UMBC.

Many parents become involved in the Meyerhoff Parents Association, which serves as a fundraising and mutual support resource.
