Mayor’s Scholars Program - Overview
Earn an associate degree or complete a workforce training program tuition-free.
Baltimore City Community College is making college affordable through a last-dollar scholarship with the Mayor’s Scholars Program (MSP). This opportunity makes college and job training programs affordable and helps students move toward a rewarding career and financial security.
Benefits of the program:
- Students can participate in the program full time (at least 12 credits per semester) if they are a Baltimore City resident and a high school graduate or have completed their GED (21 years or younger) in 2023.
- The program covers tuition and fees after all aid is awarded.
- Scholars have up to three years to earn an associate degree, certificate or complete a job-training program.
- In partnership with Coppin State University, participants who complete an associate degree within three years are eligible to earn a bachelor’s degree tuition-free. Visit the Coppin State University website for additional information.
Although textbooks, supplies, transportation, living costs, and other expenses are not included in the MSP scholarship, these costs may be covered through financial aid. Read our Frequently Asked Questions web page to learn more about the program.
