The Henry Hall Fellowship—formerly known as the Aquarium on Wheels program—is a rigorous, four-year program designed to honor and extend the legacy of engineer, world traveler, aquarist and philanthropist Henry Hall (1896–1979) by mentoring and fostering the next generation of Baltimore City's leaders and change makers through opportunities to:

  • Develop a deep understanding of the principles of urban conservation and environmental justice and how those concepts influence and affect Baltimore City and the health of its residents.
  • Explore and experience STEAM career opportunities.
  • Learn, practice and hone the leadership skills needed to influence social and political leadership and effect meaningful change, today and in the future.

Application Timeline:

Applications for our 2021-2022 Henry Hall Fellowship season open on August 1 and close September 3, 2021. Interviews will be conducted during the week of September 13; Selections will be made during the week of September 20, and students will be notified during the week of September 27. New fellows will begin on October 4, 2021.

  • October through April: Monday through Wednesday, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm.
  • July 2022: Monday through Friday, time TBD.
  • Open to Baltimore City and Baltimore County students in grades 10 through 12; Juniors and Seniors are strongly encouraged to apply this year.

Through a series of topical sessions and field experiences, Henry Hall Fellows will use Baltimore as a case study to explore the history of urbanization in the United States and its effect on the environment. Fellows will then take a deep dive into concepts like climate change, water pollution, waste management and air quality, and make connections between the health of the environment within Baltimore City and the health and wellbeing of its residents.

Fellows will use the knowledge that they gain throughout the year to design community science programs and community action projects that will focus on developing a solution for challenges they discussed during their topical sessions.

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 within their own communities.
