Weinberg Academy Fellow, Class of 2015, Economic Opportunities Program

Director of Development, Central Scholarship, Baltimore, MD

Nancy serves at the Director Development at Central Scholarship, a statewide organization dedicated to providing financial aid to people aspiring to vocational training, college, and post-undergraduate education. The vocational training scholarships are important to Baltimore City residents who are seeking to become employed in high-demand and stable jobs. The Academy helped Nancy to understand workforce systems and become a stronger advocate for funding this type of training. The Academy also strengthened Nancy’s ability to assess best practices and share that with Central Scholarship’s leadership and program team.
