Rockville Art Department Scholarships and Awards

Each year the Rockville Art Department Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to promising students majoring in art history and studio art at the Rockville Campus. Each spring, students apply for the scholarships by submitting an online application. All scholarships and awards are applied directly to tuition payments. Remaining funds may be used to purchase supplies at the College Bookstore using a special voucher. A highlight of the academic year occurs at the end of the spring semester, when scholarship recipients are honored publicly at a special awards ceremony.  

Donations to the Art Department Scholarship Fund are greatly appreciated. They should be made payable to the Montgomery College Foundation and state "Rockville Art Department Scholarship Fund" on the memo line. The Montgomery College Foundation, Inc., is a registered, nonprofit charitable organization with IRS 501 (c)(3) tax-deductible status.
