The Constance A. Murray Scholarship for graduate women students.

This scholarship is named in honor of Dr. Constance A. Murray, a dedicated educator and humanitarian who served as NJIT’s Dean of Student Services from 1978 until her death in 1994.  This scholarship was created to provide financial assistance to a female graduate student who has demonstrated academic achievement and a special commitment to diversity.  The applicant must be a graduate student with a GPA of 3.25 or higher, must have taken at least 12 credits of graduate work at NJIT (by the end of the subsequent fall semester), and should demonstrate a need for financial assistance. If you are eligible to apply, applications are available through NJIT Moodle.

To be considered for either the ACE-Network or Murray Scholarships, eligible students must complete and submit the scholarship application.  The applications (with the names of the applicants temporarily removed) are then reviewed by a scholarship selection committee.
