Mayor’s Scholars Program
Giving Baltimore City high school students a leg up on a college education is the goal of the Mayor’s Scholars Program (MSP), an innovative collaboration between Baltimore City Community College (BCCC), the Mayor’s Office [Baltimore Mayor Catherine E. Pugh] and Baltimore City Public Schools.
Graduates of the Mayor’s Scholars Program who obtain an associate’s degree can attend Coppin State University under a scholarship agreement that covers full tuition.
The Mayor’s Scholars Program begins with a seven-week Summer Bridge Program at BCCC to ease the transition from high school to college and to provide a strong academic foundation. Students are paid to attend the Summer Bridge Program through YouthWorks, Baltimore City’s summer jobs program.
The Mayor’s Scholars Program is available for 150% or up to three years for students to complete their chosen program at BCCC that is equivalent to a two-year degree.
