Monk's Home Improvements is currently accepting applications for the first annual Monk's Home Improvements Service Scholarship Award.

College-bound students who have demonstrated a leadership role in community service are encouraged to apply. Five scholarships, each in the amount of $2,000, will be awarded. Applicants must be from Morristown and surrounding areas with plans to attend, or continue attending, an accredited college or university for the 2014-2015 school year.

“Growing up, I was a church group leader and very involved in community service,” explains Ty Monk, founder of Monk’s Home Improvements. “As my family and the business has grown, I’ve found it increasingly difficult to devote the time I’d like to community service. With the Monk’s Service Scholarship, I hope to give something back to people who have offered their time and made the commitment to their community. Because the winners of the scholarship will be eligible to apply again next year, I also hope it encourages them to continue their service efforts in the future.”
