Rising Sophomores

Congratulations to these newly named members of the Monroe Scholar class of 2017!

Each year rising sophomores who have done exceptionally well academically are invited to apply for seats in the Monroe Scholars Program. The number of new Monroes admitted depends on the number of Monroes already in the class who were admitted to the program as freshmen.

Students named Monroe Scholars as sophomores enjoy all of the upperclass benefits of the program, such as participation in the Monroe Speaker series with faculty and visiting speakers, the opportunity to tutor at Matthew Whaley, and $3,000 in summer funding for a summer research project.
