For more than a century,
Johns Hopkins-America's first research
university-has been a world leader in discovery, education, patient
care, and public service. Johns Hopkins is home to some of the world's
best minds in fields ranging from public health to engineering, the
humanities, music, medicine, and education. The University is committed
not simply to the acquisition of knowledge but to its application for
the benefit of humankind.
Johns Hopkins University encourages students to explore, create, and
discover. About two-thirds of undergraduate students engage in some form
of independent research or scholarship. World-renowned professors at the
forefront in their fields foster critical thinking, problem solving,
creativity, and entrepreneurship in this unique educational
Approximately 5,190 full-time undergraduates from all 50 states and 71
nations are enrolled in the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences
and the G.W.C. Whiting School of Engineering. Students attend classes on
the Homewood campus - 140 park-like acres just three miles north of
Baltimore's Inner Harbor and less than an hour from Washington, D.C.
They also have the opportunity to study at other Johns Hopkins
divisions-the School of Medicine; the School of Nursing; and the
Bloomberg School of Public Health, all in East Baltimore; the Peabody
Conservatory of Music in downtown Baltimore; the Paul H. Nitze School of
Advanced International Studies in Washington, D.C.; the Carey Business
School, with its five regional campuses; and the School of Education,
with three local campuses. Johns Hopkins also has campuses in Nanjing,
China, and in Bologna, Italy.
Nearly half (45%) of engineering and arts and sciences undergraduates receive some form of financial assistance. Two of the
most prestigious scholarships available to students are made possible by
the generosity of the Hodson Trust: the Hodson Trust Scholarship and the
Hodson-Gilliam Success Scholarship.
The Hodson Trust Scholarship, which provides up to $28,500 per year, is
offered to fewer than 20 exceptional first-year students. These scholarships
are automatically renewed for three subsequent years of full-time
undergraduate study provided the recipient maintains a 3.0 grade point
Hodson-Gilliam Success Scholarships are awarded to outstanding entering
students from under-represented minority groups who have demonstrated
financial need. These scholarships, which are renewed based on continued
financial need, allow recipients to complete their undergraduate
education without taking out loans.
