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. Already
in the 2018-2019 academic year, $300,000 more in scholarship funding has been awarded.
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.
Achieving Collegiate Excellence and Success (ACES)
The Herson family is among 15 generous supporters who accepted a challenge by philanthropists
Cliff and Debbie White that will provide 40 ACES students with the scholarships and
wrap-around supports they need to pursue their associate’s degree at MC and their
bachelor’s degree at the Universities at Shady Grove.
Over 500 donors, students, faculty and staff gathered on April 5 for the annual Scholarship
Recognition Luncheon celebrating philanthropy and the access it provides to immeasurable
educational opportunities. This year’s speaker was Donald D. Dawn, president of the Gordon
and Marilyn Macklin Foundation.
When Jorge Torres was asked about his ACES scholarship donor, Mary Pat and Darren
Alcus, he said "the strength and inspiration they have given me makes me feel boundless."
