UMBC and the Meyerhoff Scholarship Program have enabled me to achieve more than I thought possible. When I first started at UMBC, I didn’t have a clear path set out for myself but being surrounded by so many inspiring and driven students empowered me. At UMBC, I was exposed to an abundance of different cultures and opportunities that have had an everlasting impact on my life, allowing me to reach my full potential as a scientist. One of the most influential aspects of my college experience was the staff and my fellow Meyerhoffs. Through their endless mentoring and dedication, they instilled in me confidence and guidance that has stayed with me well beyond my time at UMBC.

“One of UMBC’s greatest strengths is the diverse background of its faculty and student body. Not only is it something that enriches both the academic and social experiences of everyone that becomes part of UMBC, but it also strengthens us as an academic community.”
