$25,000 Scholarship for Montgomery College Students


The Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce (GGCC) provides scholarship support in various amounts to Montgomery College students to assists with costs in hopes that the individuals will give back to the community and work in Montgomery County. This year the GGCC has decided to raise $25,000 dollars.

“We feel that it is our responsibility to make sure that we help provide an educated workforce. We’d like to have either a business or engineering student with financial needs. We want to make sure that the scholarship really helps students graduate in their field and give back to our community,” said GGCC President/CEO Marilyn Balcombe.

On June 23rd, the Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union, headquartered in Germantown, presented a $2,000 dollar check for the Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce’s Montgomery College Scholarship Foundation.

“This past year the GGCC decided to raise $25,000 dollars for Montgomery County College students. As of June 29th we have made it to $21,000 dollars. I’d like to say that we will reach $25,000 dollars and then exceed that number,” said Hughes Network Systems’ Assistant VP James G. Muir.

Montgomery College students and their parents will be invited to the Chamber’s Annual Gala in December where they will announce the recipients of this year’s scholarship.

An educated workforce helps everyone’s bottom line; your donation will help students at Montgomery College explore 

their “endless possibilities.” To donate, contact the GGCC at 301-840-1400x15.
