Evaluate Scholarship Applications
Scholarship readers evaluate scholarship applications submitted for CollegeBound’s $3 million scholarship portfolio.  Each spring, CollegeBound receives hundreds of applications from Baltimore City Schools’ students for scholarships based on criteria including academic merit, community service, and resilience.
Time commitment: First-time volunteers attend a two-hour training session in February. Essay review and scoring is completed online at your own pace.  Requires 15-20 hours in March and April to review and score submissions.

Time commitment: One-year minimum commitment to meet one-on-one with mentees during college breaks and touch base during the year through emails and phone calls.
