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 depend on the number of Monroes already in the class who were admitted to the program as freshmen. On June 19, 2015 we issued email invitations to students to apply for approximately 20 seats in the Monroe Class of 2018. Applications from invited students are due by 12 p.m. on Wednesday November 4, 2015.
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.
