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
