The Meyerhoff Cohort Giving Challenge presents an annual opportunity for alumni to demonstrate both their appreciation for the program that gave them so much, and their commitment to future Meyerhoff Scholars. In the spirit of healthy competition, the cohort with the highest participation of giving each year will be recognized on the Meyerhoff website and on a plaque in the Scholarship Program office.
Congratulations to the M1's and M17's for winning with 28% participation from their respective cohorts.
