Five Baltimore City high school students were surprised by McDaniel College’s Admissions and Financial Aid Offices over Zoom with full-tuition scholarships to attend McDaniel as part of the incoming Class of 2024.
The McDaniel-CollegeBound scholarships cover full tuition for all four years at McDaniel (a value of more than $160,000).
McDaniel has partnered with the CollegeBound Foundation since 2008 to provide full-tuition scholarships to Baltimore City high school students. McDaniel’s Admissions Office annually interviews students from CollegeBound Foundation-staffed Baltimore City public high schools for the scholarship.
Akinwumi Akinfenwa, a senior at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, is a member of the track and field team, where he serves as co-captain. He won the Maryland Indoor State Championship in the 4x400m in both 2018 and 2019.
