The Meyerhoff Scholars Program in Diverse Issues in Higher Education

Lorelle L. Espinosa, director of policy and strategic initiatives at the Institute for Higher Education Policy, writes in Diverse Issues in Higher Education that the Meyerhoff Scholars Program is the kind of program needed to increase retention of underrepresented students in STEM fields.

“The Meyerhoff Scholars Program at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County is a model example of institutional programming that provides research experience and exposure, community-based academic enrichment, and financial support for a full four years,” she writes.

The article, “Institutional Adaptation for STEM Completion,” appeared November 22 in Diverse Issues in Higher Education.
