The Child Life Scholar program at Towson University allows a selected student to work
in the Child Life department at University of Maryland Children's Hospital for 20
hours a week in exchange for $5,000 towards tuition. This exclusive opportunity is
a unique and highly rewarding experience for Child Life students.
“The opportunities that are presented to me daily at the hospital further expand my
Child Life knowledge and experience, and have opened up many doors for me. I plan
and implement events and developmentally appropriate activities for children and families
to provide extra support while they are in the hospital. I also coordinate donations
and estimate costs of purchasing items for the Child Life department, which teaches
me communication and budgeting skills.
“In this position, I get the best of both worlds. I see the administrative background
work that happens in order to keep our program strong and effective, as well as the
impact that our Child Life team has when working directly with children and families.
The Child Life Scholar position is shaping me professionally as I continue my journey
to becoming a Certified Child Life Specialist.” – Amanda Ackermann, B.S. Family and Human Services; candidate for M.S. Child Life, Administration,
