Read Scholarship Essays

With $2 million in annual scholarship and grant money, CollegeBound receives hundreds of applications for our competitive scholarships from Baltimore City public high school seniors who are applying to college. We are looking for a diverse group of individuals to be scholarship readers to help us identify students with strong academic, service and leadership qualities.Volunteers will evaluate 10–20 applications each. Your total time commitment will be 5–10 hours during the course of the reading period (March 28– April 20, 2017). All scholarship applications are available online and can be read at home or anywhere with internet access. Volunteers only need to attend ONE orientation training session. To sign up, please contact Sam Lozano at slozano@collegeboundfoundation.org.

Mentor an Urban Scholar

Each year, up to 10 of Baltimore City’s most promising high school seniors are chosen as Urban Scholars. Scholars receive a life-changing series of workshops, mentor partnerships, and scholarship of $10,000 delivered annually throughout all four years of college. Mentors play a vital role in this process, helping students understand the value of a college education and offering professional guidance.
