Joseph A. Monachino was a beloved husband and father who passed away too soon in 2018 after battling cancer.

Joseph immigrated to America from the small town of Canicattì, Sicily. He joined the Navy as an enlisted sailor and worked his way up to become a Commander, a path demonstrating extraordinary dedication and ability, as it is one of the most challenging routes to success in the Navy.

Joseph was an Engineer who earned his Master's degree from Georgia Tech. A proud Seabee, he dedicated 25 years to working in the Civil Engineer Corps for the Navy. He valued education, a strong work ethic, and duty to his country. He also strongly believed in the importance of family, faith, and the power of knowledge to expand horizons.

This scholarship aims to honor the life of Joseph A. Monachino by supporting students committed to ethics, hard work, and the pursuit of higher education at a 4-year college or trade school.

Any high school student in Nevada with financial need and strong academic performance may apply for this scholarship opportunity. Preference is given to applicants from Carson High School and those involved in ROTC or JROTC programs.

To apply, please share your educational journey, impactful experiences, future plans, and why

this scholarship is important to you.
