Become a MERIT Mentor!

November 3, 2016

Do you want to share your knowledge and experience with Baltimore City high school students who aspire to become health care professionals? Consider applying to become a MERIT mentor!


MERIT is a pipeline program for under-represented high school students that includes paid summer internships in hospitals and labs, Saturday classes, college counseling and longitudinal mentorship.

Mentoring tremendously benefits Scholars in the program (100% get into 4-year Universities) but it also has a profound impact on mentors. We’re looking for mentors who can serve for at least 1.5 years, but the monthly time is only 5-7 hours, largely determined by you and the Scholar you’re matched with. We hope you'll apply! Priority Deadline: 11/6. More info is available at Please email if you have any questions.
