For Freshman Monroes

All incoming freshmen are considered for admittance to the program--no additional application is required. Students selected usually graduate in the highest range of their high school classes and present standardized test scores in the top five percent nationally. Other selection criteria include a concern for community, intellectual depth, curiosity, and a demonstrated devotion to learning for learning's sake.

There are many benefits for incoming freshmen who are selected as Monroe Scholars, including special interest housing, priority registration, and eligibility to apply for a summer research project grant.
