BALTIMORE, Md. – The Maryland National Guard proudly announces the virtual signing of a formal agreement with Johns Hopkins University Feb 26 at 10 a.m. as the university becomes the 40th Partner in Education. For members of the MDNG enrolled with Johns Hopkins, this new partnership provides an instant 50% tuition discount for the first six credits of undergraduate study and up to 100% reimbursement of qualifying undergraduate and graduate tuition.

“Maryland continues to lead the way in education benefits with unparalleled opportunities to our Citizen-Soldiers and Airmen,” said Maj. Gen. Timothy E. Gowen, adjutant general for Maryland. “I’m grateful to Johns Hopkins for becoming our newest Partner in Education as these relationships greatly support our Soldiers and Airmen.”

Johns Hopkins is America’s first research university. For more than 140 years, Johns Hopkins has been a world leader in both teaching and research, with nine academic divisions — the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Whiting School of Engineering, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Carey Business School, the Peabody Institute, the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, and the schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Education — plus the Applied Physics Laboratory, a nonacademic division that supports national security and pursues space science.

“Johns Hopkins is thrilled to become a Partner in Education with the Maryland National Guard and to support the academic advancement of those working in service to our state,” said Sunil Kumar, Johns Hopkins provost and senior vice president for academic affairs. “Johns Hopkins and the Maryland National Guard share a commitment to education and making a positive difference in our communities. This partnership is a natural extension of our missions.”
