Bertha Munro Scholarship
The Bertha Munro Scholarship is a full-tuition scholarship for students who exemplify high academic success as well as exemplary leadership and service. Recipients of this award have demonstrated dedication through their high school careers and have touched the lives of others through their community service, leadership, and extracurricular achievements.
History of the Scholarship
The Bertha Munro Scholarship is a full-tuition scholarship named in honor of Eastern Nazarene College’s first Dean, Bertha Munro. Dean Munro is embedded in the collective memories of the Eastern Nazarene College community due to her dedication and long service to the college. She has been described as brilliant, scholarly, dignified, compassionate, wise, and faithful. Dean Munro was a driving force behind the mission of the college and her philosophy still guides us today. It was Dean Munro who said, “There is no conflict between the best in education and the best in our Christian faith.”
In February every year, eligible students are invited to campus to celebrate their academic achievements and experience the Eastern Nazarene College community. Students are given the opportunity to meet personally with professors in their anticipated field of study, tour the campus with current students, and interview with academic deans and members of the President’s Cabinet.
Due to their academic and personal achievements, these students have earned consideration as a prestigious Munro Scholar, affording them special benefits as students and recognition at graduation.
This invitation only event is presented by the Eastern Nazarene Honors Society. Students who meet eligibility for our full tuition Munro Scholarship are invited to this event. As a potential Munro Scholarship candidate you will be given unique opportunities to engage with the ENC community. Not only will you get to meet professors, but you will be able to participate in a college-level academic experience. The day will include a formal interview with a panel made up of our highly esteemed faculty and members of the President’s Cabinet. Food and refreshment will be provided throughout the day along with interactions with our financial aid advisor, enrollment counselors, and current students.
