Westat Is Key Corporate Sponsor for Montgomery College’s Presidential Scholars Program

Westat is announcing its commitment to sponsor and partner with Montgomery College in establishing the Presidential Scholars Program, which is designed to foster the opportunity for underrepresented students to succeed in high workforce need areas. The comprehensive program assembles a concentration of ambitious and diverse students in a tight-knit learning community to achieve their full potential. It offers education, training, financial support, and mentorship to help all students achieve transformational change in their lives.

Montgomery College and Westat have collaborated over many years to support students in the community. Westat helped establish funding through the Montgomery College Foundation for the Achieving Collegiate Excellence and Success (ACES) program, which supports a path for students in the local public school system to obtain a bachelor’s degree. It supports more than 2,500 students each year with critical education and coaching services.

“Westat believes that investing in education strengthens our workforce, and the Presidential Scholars Program will expand access and opportunity for young people,” stresses Scott Royal, Ph.D., Westat’s President and CEO. “Our company is proud to support this groundbreaking program that will make education an accessible dream for all citizens. I am encouraged that more talented students will be empowered to achieve, and that education equity goals that are so greatly needed will be met. I know that Montgomery College will experience radical success in the years to come in strengthening our communities.”
