Fighting Scots Society

The Fighting Scots Society supports student-athletes and coaches, maintaining and growing a premiere athletics program.


The Monmouth College Fighting Scots Society generates nationwide interest and financial support for the College’s 22 athletic programs, and it is critical to the success of our coaches and their scholar-athletes. It provides much-needed funds for recruitment, facility enhancement, athletic training resources and more.

Our Scots have won numerous Midwest Conference championships and set new records every year. We’re pleased to say that the Fighting Scots Society is doing the same with record numbers of donors and support. But in order for our programs to be perennial contenders at the national level, increased support of the Fighting Scots Society is needed. That support, along with our outstanding academic programs, beautiful campus and strong sense of community, will allow us to stand out against other institutions.

You are the team behind our teams, and we invite you to support a group of coaches and scholar-athletes who grow, learn and mature through victories and defeats while developing knowledge and skills in the classroom that help them earn the most important prize of all – a Monmouth College diploma.
