Monte Scholarship Information for ASD Graduates, Sophomores, Juniors & Seniors

Click Here for Forms, Criteria and Scholarship Information

January 2017

In 1998, ASD received a very generous gift from an alumnus of the school, Mrs. Alberta Monte. Mrs. Monte graduated from ASD in 1929, and due to hard times of the depression, she was unable to attend college. Mrs. Monte did not want to see any other deaf children miss an opportunity for further education. Accordingly, she has left this gift to ASD for the purpose of providing scholarships to qualified ASD students who intend to go to college.

We will award a portion of this scholarship fund to qualified ASD Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores who will be attending college or taking college courses. Enclosed is a list of the scholarships as well as an application form that each student must complete and submit by Friday, May 5, 2017.

Incomplete applications will not be considered.

You and your child should be aware of the timelines in preparation for submitting the scholarship application.

Parents please review the scholarship criteria carefully and make sure each requirement is met.

Please be advised that monetary awards will be held until graduation from ASD and are released directly to the college upon proof of enrollment. Students who leave ASD before graduation will lose their scholarships.

Please call Dawn Love's office at 860-570-2380  if you have any questions or email at
