Dr. Ellen McDaniel Scholarship Fund

Dr. Ellen McDaniel, former Associate Dean for Admissions at the University of Maryland Medical School, prominent forensic psychiatrist, and both a founding member and longtime supporter of Baltimore Lab School, passed away peacefully in January 2013, following a courageous battle with cancer. Baltimore Lab School is thankful to have been one of Dr. McDaniel’s philanthropic priorities since our inception, and we are honored to develop the Dr. Ellen McDaniel Scholarship Fund to continue her legacy.

Dr. McDaniel’s tremendous impact on the lives of others is evident through the outpouring of support our school has received. To date, the Dr. Ellen McDaniel Scholarship Fund has exceeded $200,000 in contributions.

Your donation to this fund will help us give bright and exceptional students an extraordinary opportunity, and is a touching tribute to Dr. McDaniel’s dedication to our program.

Students from our Lower School enjoyed a field trip to Dr. McDaniel's farm in November 2012.
