Become a Murphy Scholar
Interviews for the Murphy Scholars Class of 2021 are now complete.
We will not be interviewing any more students,
and are no longer accepting applications.
The application for the Murphy Scholars Class of 2022
(students who will be in 8th grade during the 2017-2018 school year)
will be posted on our website on August 1, 2017
and will be due October 27, 2017.
Students apply for a Daniel Murphy Scholarship in the fall of their 8th grade year only. Students who exhibit strong academic potential, outstanding character and financial need are encouraged to apply. The application will require the student to write two essays and request three recommendations (7th grade math teacher, 7th grade language arts teacher, and guidance counselor or principal). Parents will be asked to submit detailed financial information, including 2016 tax documents (1040s and W2s) for both custodial and non-custodial parents. Parents will also be asked to answer several questions about their child. Lastly, the guidance counselor or principal will be asked to submit a copy of the student’s 7th grade report card and 7th grade standardized test scores (i.e. Aspire, NWEA).
