McMurran Scholars Association Scholarship

The McMurran Scholars Association Scholarship is funded through private donations made through the Shepherd University Foundation. The award was established in 2011 by the McMurran Scholars Association as part of the celebration of the 50th class of McMurran Scholars. Each recipient must be a McMurran Scholar and be attending Shepherd University as a graduate student (full or part-time).
