Watch the Community College Scholars Celebration
On November 18, UMUC honored hundreds of scholarship recipients at its annual Community College Scholars dinner. Held at the UMUC Inn and Conference Center Ballroom, this year's event featured a keynote address by Dr. Walter Bumphus, president and CEO of the American Association of Community Colleges, along with remarks by UMUC President Susan C. Aldridge and Provost Greg von Lehmen.
Each year, UMUC awards more than $1 million in scholarships to exemplary graduates of alliance community colleges through its Community College Transfer Scholarship program. For the 2011–12 school year, 280 students from community colleges across the country received scholarships, worth up to $3,300 per year.
