About Us

The Monroe Scholarship Fund

Established in 1958, the Monroe Scholarship Fund, Inc. is a non-profit 501c(3) organization. Our purpose is to raise scholarship funds to assist high school seniors who live in Monroe, CT. Our goal is to increase both the level of financial assistance and the number of scholarships available to deserving high school seniors. As the rising cost of higher education outpaces inflation, even families who have planned for college tuition are struggling with the cost of higher education.


Scholarships are awarded to high school seniors who reside in Monroe, CT based on academic performance, leadership, specific areas of study, community service and financial need. Applicants must be in the top 30% academic ranking of their graduating class.

Board of Directors

Our board is comprised of volunteers interested in helping students and parents meet the rising costs of education. We meet on the third Wednesday evening of each month. New members are always welcome.
