Rich Murray Volunteer Service Scholarship

Applications Due: Friday, February 13, 2015 by 4:30 p.m.

The Rich Murray Volunteer Service Scholarship recognizes a St. Cloud State University student each year who has demonstrated a commitment of giving through volunteerism while a student at St. Cloud State University. This may be service with an established organization, or individual acts of service over a significant period of time.

This $500 scholarship is made possible by a generous gift from Richard E. Murray, former director of SCSU Career Services. Mr. Murray started this scholarship because he believes in three basic ideals:
the value of education; the value of giving back a little of what has been given; and the belief that everyone will need the help of others at some time.

Who is eligible?

• Any St. Cloud State University student, undergraduate or graduate is eligible to apply.
• Previous recipients of this scholarship are not eligible to apply.
• Only service activities done while a student at St. Cloud State University will be recognized.

The Soroko-Ditlevson Service Scholarship recognizes a St. Cloud State University student who has demonstrated significant involvement in campus and/or community service.

This $500 scholarship is made possible by a generous gift from Mary Soroko and Andy Ditlevson. The donors have funded this service scholarship because they both experienced the transformational power of higher education. Prior to earning their degrees, each of them had very limited life choices. Both donors were first generation college students.

Preference for this scholarship will be given to students who are the first in their families to attend college. They should be full-time students who have declared a Business, Communication Studies or Mass Communication Major.
