McMurran Scholars Association Scholarship

The McMurran Scholars Association Scholarship is funded through private donations made through the Shepherd University Foundation.

Each recipient must be a McMurran Scholar and be attending Shepherd University as a graduate student (full or part-time). (Download scholarship application)
