MURRAY -- Murray State University's 2020-21 scholarship application is now open. Murray State provides many academic achievement scholarships as well as need-based scholarships and grants.

Murray State offers two types of scholarships: academic achievement and competitive. Academic achievement scholarships are only awarded to incoming freshmen at the time of admission. Competitive scholarships require students to complete the Murray State General Scholarship Application and are awarded after application deadline. Recipients must reapply each year.

In order for University scholarships and discounts to apply to student accounts, undergraduate students must file and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA opens Oct. 1; visit for more information.

As part of its core belief that no one should be denied an education because of financial need, the University also offers the Murray State Promise. Murray State will provide scholarship assistance to help pay for tuition and mandatory fees if the student's combined federal, state, institutional and private gift aid total is less than the cost of Murray State's tuition (12-15 hours).

Registration for the fall 2020 semester at Murray State University is also open. Students are encouraged to visit to get started.
