Monterosso Scholarship Award


Wagner College is conducting a competition to award the Monterosso Scholarship. The financial award will be presented to a Wagner student in their junior or senior year, who has an interest in a public service career.

This award is given in memory of the Honorable Vincent J. Monterosso, Class of 1963, who died in 2003. Mr. Monterosso dedicated his life to public service and this scholarship is intended for students who share in Mr. Monterosso’s commitment to the public good.

Sophomore students should apply to receive scholarship funding for their junior year, and junior students should apply to receive the scholarship funding for their senior year. Students who received the Monterosso Award funding for their junior year may reapply for their senior year. The student selected as the 2022-2023 recipient will receive a $7,000 scholarship.
