“The UMB CURE Scholars Program has impacted my life in many ways. It has exposed me to things that the average student in Baltimore wouldn’t see — things that have prepared me for the real world of education and working. While attending UMB CURE, I have been molded to be a professional, act with energy, understand my worth, and know that when I walk into a room, I belong there.”

— Courtney Jacobs III, UMB CURE Scholar, Cohort 1

As their senior year of high school draws to a close, Courtney Jacobs III and other members of the first graduating class of the UMB CURE Scholars Program are gathering their caps and gowns and looking to the future. After six years of mentorship, hands-on learning, and research opportunities facilitated by UMB CURE, these 17 scholars are now college-bound.

To prepare the students for this next chapter of their lives, UMB is sponsoring a UMB CURE Senior Send-Off Campaign to provide each scholar with a graduation gift to ensure they head to college in the fall with all the tools they need to be successful.

The goal is to raise $1,000 for each scholar to purchase college essentials including bedding, toiletries, laundry/cleaning supplies, dorm décor, electronics, school supplies, and more.
