“TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN, MUCH IS REQUIRED.”
The academic and career achievements of Meyerhoff scholars Program graduates speak volumes about the program’s impact. However, the level of support of the program by its own alumni is just as important in measuring the program’s success over time.
Participation in giving back presents an annual opportunity for alumni to demonstrate both their appreciation for the program that gave them so much, and their commitment to future Meyerhoff Scholars.
There are many ways to give back to the Meyerhoff Scholars Program, including: mentoring current students, networking with soon-to-be graduates, sponsoring an internship, financially supporting the program, or speaking engagements.
Why Give Back?

- Summer Bridge instruction, transportation, room and board, activities, textbook/materials
- Student conferences, seminars, and summer internships
- Marketing and recruitment and day-to-day administrative operations
