New Sophomore Transfer Monroe Scholars

Students who become Monroe Scholars as sophomores enjoy all of the upperclass benefits of the program, such as participation in the Monroe Speaker series, and $3,000 in funding for a summer research project.

Each year, sophomore students who have transferred into William & Mary from another institution will be eligible to apply to the Monroe Scholars Program by submitting a summer research grant proposal. Selected students will be awarded Monroe Scholar summer grants to complete their proposed research the summer of their sophomore or junior year. Charles Center staff will send eligible students email invitations to apply for the program in the middle of the fall semester (typically October). There are usually around 20 new seats available for transfer sophomores.
