“Receiving a scholarship from the Foundation really inspired me as a student.  It meant that someone else was investing their hard-earned money and trust to help improve my life.  Thanks to the support and commitment of the Foundation and my incredible instructors, I’m looking forward to the beginning of a career that I can be proud of.”

“My experience at Allegany College of Maryland was a beneficial one.   ACM has an understanding and caring group of professors and the intimacy of smaller class sizes has created a strong belief in myself and made me feel like an individual rather than just “another” student.  Allegany College of Maryland emphasizes uniqueness and individuality and that is why it stands out from other colleges.”

 “It is close to my home in Central City, offers a nice and small atmosphere, and is close to Somerset for convenient shopping and eating lunch between classes.  It gives a lot of people who do not have money to attend a big university a nice option of staying with family, driving down the road, and getting a great education at an affordable price.”

“The Bedford County Campus offers one-on-one help to students who need it and the staff members at the campus are very nice.  The atmosphere is great for learning.  A local campus means that I do not have to travel to Cumberland to get my education.  I am able to stay at home, do family things, and attend college.  The scholarship support is terrific and makes funding my college education easier.  It is great to see that people in the community care enough to help students get their education.”

“To a working college student struggling to find financial independence, the scholarships I received (from the ACM Foundation) are truly a God send. After the state reduced my financial-aid by over 80% from last year, the awards from the Foundation will help to alleviate my financial burden after graduation. I am extremely appreciative of the support from the Somerset County Campus and the sponsors of these scholarships. I am proud to be a student of a college and a member of a community that so generously assists its students in so many ways. Thanks Again!”

“My experiences at Allegany College of Maryland were all positive.  The class sizes were not so large that you felt isolated from the instructor, and all the instructors provided support even out of the classroom.

Computer Science and Technology - Web Development Option

“I have been taking Web Design classes online for over a year now.  I absolutely love the fact that I can spend time with my family when I want and still work towards a degree.   I can be on my own schedule and I do not have to worry about traveling.  The classes are great and I have learned so much.  I never thought that I would be creating Web Sites without having to sit in a formal classroom setting.  The teacher is available for help with any questions or problems that I may have.  It has been a wonderful experience and I will continue taking classes online, as long as the courses are offered!”
