UMB CURE Scholars Program is Hiring Federal Work Study Students This Summer!

The UMB CURE Scholars Program is a groundbreaking year-round pipeline program that identifies sixth-graders with an interest in science from three West Baltimore middle schools and supports these scholars throughout middle school, high school, and beyond. The UMB CURE Scholars Program is designed to support under-represented minority students by exposing them to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers, exciting experiments, and inspiring mentors. With a 5:1 mentor-to-scholar ratio, scholars participate in after-school hands-on experiments; Saturday tutoring and life skill development workshops; and a comprehensive summer academic enrichment component. Through rich scientific opportunities, scholars gain presentation experience, academic growth, self-confidence, and the motivation necessary to succeed. The ultimate goal is to increase the pool of under-represented minorities pursuing careers in STEM, health care, and cancer research. The federal work-study student would assist in administrative duties within the office. This primarily includes entering data necessary to measure scholars’ success and to maintain compliant with grant funders and the institutional review board. In addition, the federal work-student would be asked to organize and transport supplies necessary for our after-school and summer programming on campus. Come be part of a fun team and help make a difference in the lives of our scholars and in the West Baltimore community! For more information, please contact Emily Blatter at
