About the Program
The Baltimore Scholars Program offers full-tuition scholarships for Baltimore City public high school students who are accepted to Johns Hopkins University (please see eligibility below for more details.) Since its founding, the university has been committed to bettering the community of which it is a part, and to supporting public education in Baltimore City. The university hopes that all of Baltimore's best students will consider studying at Johns Hopkins, a world class university in their own backyard.
The inaugural class of Baltimore Scholars entered the university in 2005; since then, over 100 Baltimore Scholars have enrolled at Johns Hopkins through the program. In addition to the full-tuition scholarship, students receive guidance and enrichment throughout their years here and benefit from working closely with a faculty and staff program committee to achieve their goals as soon as they enroll.
To be eligible for the program, the prospective student must meet three requirements. He/she must:
- be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
- be a graduate from a Baltimore City public high school.
- have been a student in a Baltimore City public school for at least 10th, 11th, and 12th grades and have been a resident of Baltimore City, along with a custodial parent, for those same three years.
There is no separate application to become a Baltimore Scholar. Students simply apply for undergraduate admission to the Johns Hopkins division they would like to attend: the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Whiting School of Engineering, or the Peabody Conservatory. Upon acceptance, the student qualifies for the scholarship. In general, Johns Hopkins seeks students who are well-prepared for college, who are deeply interested in learning, and who contribute to their schools and communities, and these are the same qualities we seek in Baltimore Scholars.
