Meet our Scholarship Recipients

Get to know some of the local students whose future we are supporting through our work.



“This scholarship has given me confidence to pursue bigger dreams, because someone who does not know me, believed in me and rewarded me for it. After she graduates in December 2020, Mori hopes to work for the Communications Department for the city of Baltimore. “I am very passionate about Baltimore and its image. I love living here, and I want people to see Baltimore how I see Baltimore. It’s time to control our own narrative!”

“Through the scholarship, not only was I able to receive financial assistance during my undergraduate career, but I was able to gain invaluable connections and opportunities within the hospitality industry.”

“To me this scholarship means that the city of Baltimore is making an investment in those students who want to invest in the city. Having been awarded this scholarship means that the Visit Baltimore Organization values the education of Morgan state students, and value HBCUs. This scholarship is an investment in the city of Baltimore that shows a commitment to change from people who live in the city.”

“This scholarship really motivated me to make big plans for myself. It incentivized me to want to stand out and be ambitious on what I pursue. After graduation, I strive to go to medical school to become a physician with a public health perspective, hoping to work with underserved communities towards bridging the existing inequality gap in health care access and services.”
