      The applications for the Murphy Scholar Class of 2025 are now available! Current 7th grade students (entering high school in the fall of 2021) are now eligible to apply. The application deadline is Friday, May 8th 2020.
      7th and 8th grade applicants who demonstrate academic potential, strong character and financial need are the best candidates for a Murphy Scholarship. Applicants must live in the city of Chicago, Cicero, or Berwyn to be eligible for the scholarship. We do not accept applications from students who live in other communities.

      Application Process

      There are three distinct portions of the application to be filled out:

      1. Student component: Several short questions and two essay questions.
      2. Parent/Guardian component: Several short questions, financial information for all parents/guardians (including non-custodial parents and/or step-parents).
      3. Educator component: Teachers and Principals/Counselors must fill out recommendation forms and submit report cards and standardized test results. Recommendations, report cards and test scores will be submitted electronically.  Once your application has been submitted, DMSF will contact your teachers and principals/counselors to obtain recommendations on your behalf. We require recommendations from:
      • Your 7th grade English/Language Arts teacher
      • Your 7th grade Math teacher
      • Your principal or school counselor
