Annual Larry Monroe Scholarship Award
The Larry Monroe Scholarship Award is presented annually in memory of former FBI
Agent Lawrence J. Monroe, one of the founders of the National Executive Institute. Larry
played a crucial role in the initial program design, curriculum development and
administration of many NEI programs during his long, distinguished career at the FBI
Academy. His untimely death in 1999 led to the creation of this coveted scholarship.
Candidates for this award include all eligible* NEI members' children and grandchildren
who are enrolled in an accredited two- or four-year undergraduate program or who are
pursuing a masters or higher level degree. Proof of registration or current attendance must
be included with the application, which must be submitted by March 30, 2013. Selection
will be based on monetary need, demonstrated work ethic, scholarship record, and service
At the Scholarship Committee's discretion, the amount of this award may range from
$5,000 up to $10,000; and it may be presented to a single student or be divided between
two or more, depending upon the various applicants' qualifications.
Recipients will be announced at our annual meeting this May in Grapevine, Texas.
The Larry Monroe Scholarship application consists of three parts: Part I must be
completed by the sponsoring NEI member and must include a brief statement on behalf
of the candidate. Parts II and III must be completed by the student.
*To be eligible, NEI member must have paid all dues for a minimum of the past three years.
