Empowering Students, Building Community
Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday. Every day is a good day to invest in the future of our students and our community!

The Montgomery College Foundation provided over $2.1 million in private scholarships to more than 1,800 students during the 2016–2017 academic year, thanks to generous individual, corporate, and foundation donors. These figures represent the skyrocketing need for student support. Regretfully, the foundation had to turn down hundreds of additional qualified scholarship applicants due to limited funds.
