Rich Murray Volunteer Service Scholarship

This annual scholarship recognizes a St. Cloud State student committed to giving through volunteerism. This may be service with an established organization or individual acts of service over a significant period of time.

The scholarship is made possible by a generous gift from Richard E. Murray, former director of the Career Center. Murray started this scholarship because he believes in these 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. Apply by Huskies Scholarship deadline annually.
