Meyerhoff graduates have received these degrees from such institutions as Harvard, Stanford, Duke, M.I.T., Berkeley, University of Michigan, Yale, Georgia Tech, Johns Hopkins, Carnegie Mellon, Rice, University of Pittsburgh, NYU, and the University of Maryland.
- Over 300 alumni are currently enrolled in graduate and professional degree programs.
- An additional 256 students are currently enrolled in the program for the 2020-2021 academic year, of whom 73% are from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups and 27% are from non-underrepresented racial and ethnic groups.
- The program is having a dramatically positive impact on the number of minority students succeeding in STEM fields; students were 5.3 times more likely to have graduated from or be currently attending a STEM Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. program than those students who were invited to join the program but declined and attended another university.
