Dedicated to nurturing young talent, the John Hopkins Center for Talented Youth offers various scholarships to exemplary students such as the John Hopkins CTY Scholarship.
The CTY scholarship was created in 2004 to help smart underprivileged 8th-graders from poor backgrounds or traditionally unrepresented groups get an affordable education. The scholarship provides tuition for both the summer and the year-round programs.
The scholarship readies the students for top performance in their classwork and for future leadership roles through participation in intensive summer programs, mentoring programs, and distance education courses.
To be eligible for the CTY scholarship, candidates must have good SAT/ACT scores. Besides the SAT/ACT exams, students must come from a low-income household, and live in a geographic area selected by donors.
