Since the inception in 1984, the Monroe Scholar Program has relied on the generosity of our alumni and the families of our current students. Now that the Commonwealth's contribution to the overall operating budget of the College has dropped to just 14 percent this reliance has only grown.
The Monroe Scholars program and other Charles Center's programs would not exist without the support of alumni/ae and friends. Thanks to your generosity, we're able to fund summer research grants for undergraduates, visiting speakers and other special programs for our scholars, or assist with academic conference travel. You may designate your gift for the general Charles Center fund or, by adding a note in the "Comments" field, for the Monroe Scholars program.
