The Richard E. and Nancy P. Marriott Foundation provided a $20,000 grant to the Montgomery College Foundation to support hospitality management students. The grant funds will be added to the existing Marriott Hospitality Center Scholarship, which was established in 2001 with support from the J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation.

Montgomery College's Marriott Hospitality Center and its hospitality management program are located on the Rockville Campus. The College offers students an associate's degree in hospitality management, a certificate in food and beverage management, or a certificate in meeting and conference planning.

"We have awarded nearly 100 Marriott Hospitality Management scholarships over the past decade," said Montgomery College President Dr. DeRionne Pollard. "With the generous support of the Richard E. and Nancy P. Marriott Foundation, we will help even more students achieve their educational dreams and build the hospitality workforce for our region. The Marriott family, through its foundations and corporate support, continues to be a shining example of philanthropic partnership benefitting our community."

"We are delighted to partner with Montgomery College in expanding opportunities for students to pursue their studies in hospitality management and thereby help them achieve their dreams," said Richard Marriott, president of the Richard E. and Nancy P. Marriott Foundation.

The hospitality curriculum is designed to provide a theoretical and practical approach to management in the hospitality industry. Food and hotel classes, along with management requirements, make up the core of the program. Emphasis is placed on entry-level and mid-level hotel, food, and institutional administration, with practical experience and training acquired through part-time and summer employment in the hospitality industry.

The Montgomery College Foundation and the Hospitality Management Program are very grateful for the generous support of the Richard E. and Nancy P. Marriott Foundation.
