500 Baltimore Public School students have been accepted into the free community college program. This is the first year for the program, titled the “last-dollar scholarship program”.
Mayor Catherine Pugh announced the program last year and said that the program provides “clear pathways for our young people” and puts them in reach “of their highest aspirations.” The Mayor’s budget this year designated $500,000 to fund this initiative.
Students must maintain a 2.0 grade point average while enrolled at Baltimore City Community College.
Baltimore is now one of 200 programs in 40 states in which tuition and fees for community college students are waived.
