NeighborHOOD Partners

Hood works cooperatively and strategically with its many partners to augment student learning and enhance the quality of life in the region and beyond. Hood is thanking its community partners with the NeighborHOOD Partners Program.

This partnership with our Frederick County neighbors creates a robust living and learning community, allowing NeighborHOOD Partner employees and their eligible family members to take advantage of Hood’s educational opportunities on our beloved campus. These partnerships integrate important aspects of employment and education for working learners.

As a pillar of our strategic plan, we see partnerships as a way to “expand applied learning opportunities for students, and enrich and serve Hood College and the Frederick community.”

Individuals working with City of Frederick, Frederick County Public Schools, Frederick County Government, Frederick Health, and Frederick National Laboratory should download and complete the relevant employment verification form below to take advantage of the NeighborHOOD program.

Please note: the completed form must be signed and dated by the applicant's employer HR office to certify eligibility. For questions, email
