$3.88 million grant supports ‘Humanities for All’

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded a combined $3.88 million to CCBC and Johns Hopkins University to continue the Humanities for All initiative, which was started in 2017. This program provides Humanities students a more dynamic learning experience and helps improve transfer success for students.

A variety of courses, programs and other experiences provide multiple touch points for exposing students to – and helping them apply – a humanities mindset to the rest of their education and life. Incentives encourage students to enter CCBC’s Honors program, which boasts greater graduation and transfer rates (more than 80 percent) to four-year institutions. A Mellon Scholars Program has also been established to give students research opportunities as well as interaction with faculty and graduate students at Johns Hopkins.
