Overview

The Henry Hall Fellowship is a program designed to honor and extend the legacy of engineer, world traveler, aquarist and philanthropist Henry Hall (1896-1979). The fellowship is for Baltimore City and Baltimore County high school students interested in urban conservation and environmental justice. The Henry Hall Fellowship aims to help fellows:

  • Understand urban conservation issues
  • Produce meaningful environmental change for a healthy Baltimore
  • Become advocates for environmental change in Baltimore
  • Explore a variety of career pathways

Fellows receive monthly stipends based on attendance. Through a series of educational sessions and field experiences, fellows will use Baltimore as a case study to dive into concepts such as climate change, water pollution, waste management and air quality to make connections between the health of the environment within Baltimore City and the well-being of its residents. Fellows will use the knowledge they gain throughout the year to formulate solutions and participate in stewardship projects.

During their time as Henry Hall fellows, students will develop skills and strategies that will empower them to become leaders and advocates for urban conservation and environmental justice.
