Scholarship Information and Advising
Lisa Grimes, the Associate Director of the Charles Center, coordinates the Office of National Scholarships for the College. Monroe Scholars who are interested in applying for these scholarships should look through the information on our website and then can schedule an appointment to meet with Lisa or one of our many Peer Scholarship Advisors (PSAs) to discuss the application process. Please see the PSA website for email addresses and office hours. Students are encouraged to investigate these opportunities early in their college career.
The Charles Center
Monroe Scholars enjoy a close connection with The Roy R. Charles Center for Academic Excellence, located in Blow Memorial Hall. The Charles Center is home to the Program's administrative offices, as well as student research, interdisciplinary studies, and faculty devleopment.
While many honors programs isolate exceptional students in a separate residential college and classes, Monroe Scholars are encouraged to take part in all aspects of campus life like any other William & Mary student. In their freshman year, admitted Monroe Scholars may choose to live in Monroe Hall with other Monroe Scholars as well as non-Monroes. Monroe is centrally located on Old Campus, near the Charles Center and the Wren Building and just across Richmond Road from Wawa.
