The UMB CURE Scholars Program is positioned to transform the West Baltimore community.
Support from individuals and companies will enable the program to touch more lives and change the trajectory of children growing up in poverty and in vulnerable situations.
With your donations, we will be able to offer more hands-on science/STEM experiences, train more mentors, and provide more workforce development opportunities to families.
Ultimately, with your support, we will be able to significantly reduce health care disparities and prepare more underrepresented minorities to become cancer researchers and health care providers.
