Montgomery College is able to offer this unique opportunity to its students through funding from the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) S-STEM program. The S-STEM program was established by the National Science Foundation in accordance with the American Competitiveness and Workforce Improvement Act of 1998. The Act reflects the national need to substantially increase the number of American scientists and engineers. The S-STEM program emphasizes the importance of recruiting students to STEM disciplines, mentoring and supporting students through degree completion, and partnering with employers to facilitate student career placement in STEM fields.

Renaissance Scholars is a selective honors program offered in the evenings and on the weekends at the Germantown campus and at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring campus. The mission of the Renaissance Scholars Honors Program is to create a learning community for high-achieving and highly motivated part-time and full-time students. This learning community provides both students and faculty the opportunity to learn from one another in a unique interdisciplinary format. Because the program is offered in the evenings and on weekends, it provides special educational opportunities for a population of students that is all too often underserved.
