The Gaithersburg Germantown Chamber of Commerce –
Montgomery College Scholarship

The Chamber is proud of its Montgomery College Scholarship Program. Our local economy relies on an educated workforce. In addition to funding current scholarships, the Chamber has established an endowment for future giving. The endowment will ensure that the Chamber continues to support Montgomery College in perpetuity.

Why Do We Contribute?

If we want to see a thriving, growing economy, we need an educated, skilled workforce. We need students ready to come into the workforce and make a contribution to our economy and to our community.

Want to Invest in the Future of Tomorrow? Here’s How You Can Help.

The GGCC scholarship committee is chaired by GGCC Past Board Chair & Hughes Network Systems Vice President Jim Muir. Muir manages donations yearly from Chamber Members and GGCC Past Chairs who step up every year and make individual and in some cases personal donations.
Please consider supporting our mission and improving the lives of students – and their families – in our community by providing them with access to a quality education/job training.
