Financial Aid and the Bhramara Heid & Ann Stillwell Scholarship & Award Fund

In July of 2004, Interior Design Professor Bhramara Heid passed away and left a bequest to the College to fund a scholarship for interior design students in our program. Professor Heid taught at Montgomery College for many years and was a mentor to many program students. In May of 2007, one of her students, Ann Stillwell succumbed to a long illness. She left another bequest and asked that her scholarship be combined with Professor Heid's. We thank them and their families for their continued help for our students. 

Heid/Stillwell Scholarship Criteria:
Interior design major, demonstrate financial need, completed 12 credits, 3.00 GPA or higher, U.S. Citizen.

Scholarship applications will be reviewed by the Interior Design Committee. The selected scholarship recipient is required to contact the Program Coordinator of the Interior Design Program in order to review a memory book before writing a thank you letter to the Heid and Stillwell family members.

Students interested in applying for the Bhramara Heid & Ann Stillwell Interior Design Scholarship & Award Fund should complete a Montgomery College Foundation Scholarship Application - deadline June 12th. The application can be downloaded at https://montgomerycollege.academicworks.com/users/sign_in. Students should complete the application and write at the top of the application "Heid-Stillwell" in order to be considered for this scholarship. Visiting the Financial Aid site will also provide important information about filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
