Providing financial assistance to those in pursuit of a medical education



 Dear Friend,

Dr. Scott E. Monk was a brilliant Trauma and Critical Care Surgeon who began his career at Cooper Hospital and became the Medical Director at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center. His great passion besides family, friends, and exceptional patient care, was education.

With this in mind, several years ago, our family created the Scott E. Monk, DO Scholarship Fund to help offset the skyrocketing costs of a medical education. Since 2009, more than $100,000 will have been awarded to many outstanding recipients who, with our assistance, were able to complete their medical education more quickly and graduate with less debt.


We want to recognize Scott’s zest for life and honor his memory and many accomplishments in a unique and fun way. Last year we again hosted the now annual Funky Monk Fish & Music Fest. It was a fantastic evening with perfect weather, delicious food, great prizes and a fabulous band. We had a great turnout and lots of fun celebrating friendships. Thanks to the generosity of you, our friends, collectively these events over that past five  years have raised over $75,000 for the Scott E. Monk Scholarship Fund, which helps defray the cost of medical education to the employees or dependents of the AtlantiCare and Acuity families. Of course, with such a great and continued response, we’re now planning the 5th Annual Funky Monk Fish & Music Fest, to be held on Thursday, June 25, 2020 “on the deck” at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City.


Please join us as a sponsor, supporter and participant in this wonderful celebration. Enjoy great food, fishing (optional), music, raffles, and fun while honoring Scott, an exceptional doctor, mentor, husband, father, son, and friend. It is through your generosity and support that we can work together to help make the communities in which we live and work both healthier and stronger. For more details about the scholarship or the Funky Monk Fish & Music Fest, please visit our new website


We are looking forward to seeing you on June 25th, 2020 on “The Deck!”

Warmest regards,

Nancy Monk

What a success!

Our Summer Fundraiser benefiting the Scott E. Monk, D.O. Scholarship Fund providing financial assistance to those in pursuit of a medical education was a fantastic time with fantastic people. The entire Monk Family & the Funky Monk Team, wants to thank you very much for showing up and making the evening memorable. Also, thank you for everybody who made a contribution and purchased raffle tickets. We also want to send out a huge “thank you” to all our sponsors. You made this thing happen.

All proceeds from the night went towards the Scott E. Scholarship Foundation to support students seeking to study medicine!
