Rich Murray Volunteerism Scholarship

The Rich Murray Volunteerism Scholarship recognizes students who have demonstrated a commitment of giving through volunteerism while at St. Cloud State University. This may be service with an established organization or individual acts of service over a significant period of time. If candidates are equally qualified, financial need will be considered. Applicants must have at least one semester remaining at SCSU; the scholarship will be applied to Fall tuition/fees. Applicants must also have a GPA of at least 2.0 and be in good academic and conduct standing with the University. Previous recipients of this scholarship are ineligible.
