A message from MSCCA partner Montgomery College:
Dear Montgomery College ECE Students,
As you are aware per the letter sent out today by the Montgomery County R&R, the Montgomery County R&R has lost the scholarship funding for the next academic year due to county budget cuts.
I am writing to let you know that Montgomery College is here to support you! Montgomery College has worked with Maryland State Department of Education and we have received approval to have ALL the students who have lost the County R&R Funding Scholarship apply for the Child Care Career & Professional Development Fund (CCCPDF) even though the deadline has passed.
Anyone who was on the Montgomery County R&R Scholarship that did not apply for the CCCPDF NEEDS TO MEET WITH ME ON MONDAY OR TUESDAY TO APPLY!
I will be at the Rockville Campus on Monday and Tuesday evenings from 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. in the front area of the Education Department to assist you to apply and sign off the Coordinator Checklist for the CCCPDF. If you are not able to make it during these times, please contact me so we can schedule a time to meet. I will hand deliver all the packets to MSDE by Thursday!
I have copied the ECE Organizations in our County to ensure that all students that were on the County Scholarship are reached as soon as possible!
Montgomery College wants to support you and ensure you can continue your education!
I look forward to seeing many of you on Monday and Tuesday. My cell phone number is 240-205-0721 if for any reason you can’t locate me or make it Monday or Tuesday.
I look forward to seeing you next week!
