Apply to be a CURE Scholar


We are currently accepting applications for West Baltimore students entering 6th-10th grade in the fall. Applications are being accepted until September 22, 2023.

For middle school students, the UMB CURE Scholars Program accepts rising 6th-8th grade students each summer/fall from our three partner schools. (Franklin Square Elementary/Middle School, Green Street Academy, and Southwest Baltimore Charter School)

Prospective scholars should have an interest in STEM and be committed to participating in a long-term STEM pipeline program through middle school and high school.

If your child will be in 6th-10th grade next fall and would like to become a CURE Scholar, please follow the application steps below.

Application Steps:

  1. The student must fill out our student application.
  2. A parent/guardian will need to complete a parent recommendation form.
  3. A teacher/school administrator will need to complete a recommendation form for the student.

Our team will reach out to the student and their family once we have received their completed application and the recommendation forms. If you have any questions about the application process, please email
