URM, or Underrepresented Minorities are welcome at Johns Hopkins University. URM High School Development is alive and well at Johns Hopkins University. Our goal with High School students is to give everyone an opportunity to become the best that they can be in the field of neuroscience. To become the leader of your field, it’s best to get started early. The URM high school development programs through scholarships and other resources are a huge part of the future of Neuroscience.
For example, the Jackie Robinson Foundation provides 30,000 dollars over four years to minority high school students showing leadership potential and demonstrating financial need to attend an accredited 4-year college or university of their choice. The Jackie Robinson foundation’s program is an excellent tool to fund URM high school development, and Johns Hopkins is happy to accept the Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholarship for our high school neuroscience programs.
The Jackie Robinson Foundation has several eligibility requirements for consideration. These include; the applicant must be a graduating high school senior, plant to attend an accredited and approved four-year institution within the United States, show leadership potential, demonstrate a dedication to community service, present evidence of financial need, be a united states citizen, have a minimum SAT score of 1,000 combined on the math and critical reading sections or a composite ACT score of 21, not possess a degree from a 2 or 4-year college when applying for the scholarship.
The John Hopkins URM High School Development Neuroscience program is the best of the best. We hope to give everyone who deserves an opportunity, but our candidates work hard in their fields. Those who have studied at John Hopkins University have gone on to become department chairs, cutting edge researchers in their field, leaders at biotech-pharmaceutical companies, and in general the top of their field. Join the Johns Hopkins alumni but getting a head start with URM high school development.
