Be a CollegeBound Urban Scholar Program or College Completion Program Mentor
Each year, up to 10 of Baltimore City’s most promising City Schools seniors are chosen as CollegeBound Urban Scholars. Scholars receive a life-changing series of workshops, mentor partnerships, and scholarships up to $10,000 delivered annually throughout all four years of college.  The College Completion Program is a new CollegeBound offering for Last Dollar Grant recipients during their college years. Mentors play a vital role in both programs, helping scholars understand the value of a college education and offering professional guidance.
Time commitment: one year minimum. Mentors meet one-on-one during the college breaks and touch base during the school year through emails and phone calls.
