Montgomery Scholars Honors Program to Hold Information Session November 22
Prospective High School Juniors, Seniors, and Parents Invited to Attend

The Montgomery Scholars Honors Program will host an information session for prospective high school juniors, seniors, and parents on Saturday, November 22 at 11 a.m. The session will be held in the Performing Arts Center at the Rockville Campus, 51 Mannakee Street, Rockville, Md.

At the session, current Scholars will share information about their experiences in the program at Montgomery College and at the University of Cambridge. In addition, the session will highlight the many paths Scholars have embarked upon over the past 10 years, including transfer success at competitive four-year colleges and universities, and graduate studies. The program’s emphasis on global studies and social responsibility is also reflected in many of the students’ service at home and abroad, including the Peace Corps, Doctors Without Borders and Teach for America. 

The Montgomery Scholars program strives to recruit an academically talented and highly diverse community of students, who reflect the rich diversity of backgrounds within the Montgomery County population. The program is currently accepting applications for its fall 2009 class. The application deadline is January 23, 2009. 

Montgomery Scholars is a rigorous honors program for a select group of 25 recent high school graduates. Created in 1999, the program’s students participate in a learning community that provides a supportive and engaging academic environment. The program features interdisciplinary, team-taught courses and research in the humanities, in addition to extracurricular learning opportunities and trips, including the summer study abroad at the University of Cambridge.

Please contact Dr. Mary Furgol at or 240-567-7285 or Maria Davidson at 240-567-5039 for more information.
