Become a MERIT Mentor!

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.
