Through the generosity of the Monroe family, Marquette is pleased to announce the John F. and Miriam Monroe Award for Marquette University High School seniors.

The John F. and Miriam Monroe Award was established to help graduates of Marquette University High School continue their education in the Jesuit tradition through enrollment at Marquette University. This unique award is presented annually to up to five students whose academic records and commitment to service demonstrate that they aspire to the Jesuit ideals of excellence in academic pursuits and service to God and others.

It is renewable each year of the recipient’s four-year (eight-semester) undergraduate program, provided that the student is in good academic standing and files the FAFSA annually. A Monroe Scholarship Program Award may be added to other academic scholarships awarded by Marquette University, not to exceed tuition. For additional program details about this award, review the applicable Award Information Guide, available from the Office of Student Financial Aid.
