There is an oft-quoted statement among Meyerhoff family members, Ôø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡To whom much is given, much is expected.Ôø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡ In fact, one of the programÔø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡s selection criteria is a proven commitment to community service. Many Meyerhoff Scholars arrive on campus possessing a well-developed sense of civic responsibility, while others find a love of volunteerism through the programÔø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡s requirement to engage in at least one community service activity each year. Regardless, all leave the program with a strong desire to reach out and connect with the larger community.
There are many ways for alumni and other friends to give back to the Meyerhoff Scholars Program, including mentoring current students, networking with soon-to-be graduates, sponsoring an internship, or speaking at a departmental seminar.
As I address the challenge of engaging minority youth who are under prepared for careers in science and technology in my career, the Meyerhoff Scholars Program inspires me by what is truly possible when we Ôø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡think bigÔø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡.Ôø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡
