The Excellence Award will award one valedictorian and one salutatorian at each public high school within the 18 county service region a one-time $1,000 scholarship to attend Murray State University. Additionally, each recipient will also receive a one-time $500 housing scholarship. Students must live on campus in order to receive the housing scholarship.
The two recipients from each school will be determined by the high school guidance counselor/principal in consultation with the Office of Enrollment Management. The Excellence Award will be in addition to other MSU institutional scholarships.
To be considered, students must apply through the MSU STARS Scholarship system by January 15.
