MONROE - Applications are now being accepted for a scholarship for Monroe students pursuing a medical school graduate program. The William C. and Margaret L. Parmer Scholarship Fund will be making its fourth award this spring.

Applicants should be residents of Monroe or graduates of Monroe High School who are enrolled and/or accepted in an accredited medical school graduate program.

The Parmer Scholarship Fund was created by Margaret Parmer, a long-time Monroe resident, who saw a need to help medical students with the high cost of their education. Margaret's husband, William, died in 2005.

The Parmer Scholarship Fund is a component of the Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin. Applications are available on the Community Foundation's website:

The application deadline is March 1. Applications should be mailed to Monroe Fund, Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin, P.O. Box 733, Monroe, WI 53566.
