Our Alumni

The Meyerhoff Family is now more than 1300 strong, with more than 1100 alumni across the nation. Many are researchers. Some are scientists and engineers, while others are physicians and teachers. All share the common bonds of striving for excellence and supporting one another.

The achievements of each Meyerhoff Scholar are impressive, and the sheer number of success stories makes the program a national leader in expanding diversity in science, engineering, and related disciplines.

As of Spring 2019, the program has achieved the following results:
  • Alumni from the program have earned 312 Ph.D.s, which includes 49 M.D./Ph.D.s, 1 DDS/Ph.D. and 1 D.V.M./Ph.D.  Our graduates have also earned 141 M.D. degrees, as well as 274 master’s degrees, primarily in engineering, and computer science and related areas.  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 281 students are currently enrolled in the program for the 2018-2019 academic year, of whom 67% are African American, 15% Caucasian, 8% Asian, 9% Hispanic, 0.5% Native American and 0.5% Pacific Islander.
  • 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 .
