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
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.
Hundreds of students, alumni and friends of Murray State University have made gifts
to help students stay in college and continue to pursue a degree. Awards are given
out as funds are available - your gift today will be immediately available to help
a student in need.
Students finding themselves financially unable to meet the costs of their Murray State
education are encouraged to contact the office of Student Engagement and Success.
