Monroe College was founded in 1933 with a single goal: To educate men and women for a successful future in the world. Monroe is recognized as a national leader in providing a focused, career-oriented, quality education to its student body with integration of classroom learning with real-world experience. Monroe offers Certificate, Associate, Bachelor’s, and Master’s degree programs that can help lead students to employment in the most relevant areas for today’s rapidly changing global economy.
With federal and state financial aid, Monroe College makes a variety of scholarships available. All undergraduate scholarships are for full-time students. Students must apply for the Federal Pell Grant as well as the TAP Grant from New York State. Scholarships are awarded after Federal and State grants are applied to the total cost of a student’s tuition and fees.
This means scholarships do not have to be paid back.
Eligibility & Requirements
- This scholarship may be awarded to high school seniors with GPA’s of 80 or above.
- To stay in the program, for eligibility, students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA, earn a minimum of 12 credits in the previous semester and maintain continuous enrollment.
- Applicants may be awarded to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who reside abroad and commence studies at Monroe College immediately upon entering the United States.
How to Apply
The scholarship will be prorated for students attending the Early Start Program.
First and foremost, students cannot receive two scholarships from the college with the exception of the Craig Rutman Scholarship, the Legacy Grant, Campus Grants or the John Milavec Award.
If a student is receiving both a scholarship and a grant, the second award cannot exceed $1,000 per semester. If a credit is created after direct costs are taken into account because of an increase in other aid, the college may adjust your need-based college funded awards accordingly, enabling more students to get the extra help they may need from the limited college funds available.
The actual amount of the scholarship is related to the student’s other financial aid grants. The scholarship remains in effect through the completion of undergraduate studies and ends upon graduation.
Deadline & Annual
February 15th, 2022, is the next deadline date. This is an annual scholarship aimed for undergraduate students.
