Hear from our scholarship recipients

“The generous support of The Monroe Foundation allowed me to enroll when I could not have otherwise afforded to.  The day I found out I would be receiving the award was one of the happiest of my life.”

Antoinette B.

“I want to thank you for helping me complete my journey at Monroe College. The kindness you have shown me and my family will never be forgotten.”

“The Monroe Foundation grant will help me to worry less about the cost of my education and focus more on performing at my highest potential.  As a first-generation college student, being given an opportunity to attend college, get an offer from a top accounting firm in the world, and attend graduate school is all I ever dreamed of as a child.”

Fatoumata C.
Pace University Class of 2021

“Words can’t be put together to say how grateful I am to be given this opportunity for a scholarship. A college education for me not only gives me a piece of paper called a degree. It allows me to step into the setting my heart desires and say I did this work.  I deserve the job.”
