2018 MC Scholarship Recipients Say Thank You
Every day is a good day to invest in the future of our students and our community!

The Montgomery College Foundation provided over 2,100 scholarships and book vouchers totaling $2.3 million during the 2017–2018 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. Support our mission by making a life-changing investment in our students. Click here to give online

What People are Saying
I know that many of the donors here today have children of your own to educate, which makes your willingness to support the children of others that much more meaningful.
