Along with participating UMBC academic departments, there are several additional programs and organizations which interact with the Meyerhoff Scholars Program. We invite you to learn more about these institutional partners and friends.
The Leadership Alliance is an academic consortium of 33 institutions of higher learning, including leading research and teaching college and universities whose mission is to develop underrepresented students into outstanding leaders and role models in academia, business and the public sector.
