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.
