Dunker’s Challenge Student Education Emergency Fund

The Dunker’s Challenge Student Education Emergency Fund was established in 2018 to assist Murray State University students who encounter emergency or catastrophic events that could prevent them from either continuing their education at Murray State or who live on campus and require emergency housing/dining over a semester or holiday break. The program supports a variety of different types of emergency needs our students encounter while attending Murray State University, including tuition assistance, transportation assistance, book vouchers, lodging and meals over holiday breaks, campus housing assistance, possible application fee's, etc.

 Dunker’s Challenge scholarships are paid directly to a Murray State student’s account to offset any balances pertaining to tuition, housing, dining, or fees allowing the student to direct personal finances to those unexpected emergencies that could keep them from returning to or finishing their degree at Murray State University.
