27
Treisman Model
  • Focus on excellence, rather than adequacy
  • Collaborative learning
  • Faculty sponsorship

UMBC Meyerhoff Scholars Program
The Meyerhoff Program seeks to increase the
number of minorities, particularly
African-Americans, who earn doctoral degrees in
the sciences, mathematics, computer science, and
engineering.
  • Open to all highly-achieving minority high
    school seniors with an interest in graduate study
    in the sciences or engineering.
  • The program currently holds approximately 180
    students.
  • 95 of graduating Meyerhoff Scholars
    immediately enter into professional and graduate
    schools.

29
Structure of the Meyerhoff Scholarship Program
  • Scholarship support for all students
  • The Summer Bridge Program prior to entrance,
    featuring academic coursework, time management
    coursework, and social networking activities.
  • Research experience
  • Interaction with a practicing professional mentor
  • Personal interaction with UMBC faculty and staff
  • Special academic support, cultural enrichment,
    and career-oriented workshops
