Scholarships & Grants


The Financial Aid Office reserves the right to replace institutional grants and scholarships with other gift aid sources in the same amounts, in order to maximize limited resources. Please note that the total amount of gift aid awarded will not be reduced. McMurry based scholarship/awards will not exceed the cost of tuition.

The scholarships listed below require full-time enrollment unless noted. The annual amount is based on Fall and Spring enrollment and is awarded by semester. SAT score requirements for scholarships are based on the Critical Reading and Math subsection scores combined. Transfer students with less than 24 transferable hours are subject to review of High School Transcripts. Military awards cannot be stacked with Freshman or Transfer Scholarship/awards. McMurry Scholarships, Awards, and Financial Aid are awarded based on availability of funds. Amounts are subject to change.
