The Woodlands, Texas – The board and staff of the Montgomery County Community Foundation are pleased to announce scholarship applications have been emailed to all local public high schools in Montgomery County and Lone Star College Montgomery for the scholarships to be paid for the fall 2022 semester.

Most MCCF scholarships are unique to a specific school and might be targeted to a specific group like athletes or demonstrated financial need.  Three of MCCF’s scholarships are more broadly available to students living in Montgomery County.  The Mary Jane Hamilton Memorial Scholarship for Lone Star College Montgomery offers four scholarships to graduating seniors from a high school in Montgomery County and who are interested in attending Lone Star College Montgomery.  The scholarship is needs based.  The Cort Martin Memorial Scholarship is available to graduating CISD high school seniors who are interested in attending Lone Star College Montgomery.

High School college and career counselors have received the scholarship applications that are available to students at their schools.  Students who are interested in what is available to them should check with their counselor or check on their school’s scholarship portal.
