Murray Fellowship

The Paul E. Murray Fund has generously enriched science and engineering education at Merrimack College since the 1980s.

The Paul E. Murray Fellowship in Science and Engineering will promote science and engineering research that will lead to enhanced effectiveness in classroom teaching. This objective is to be achieved through support for significant projects of research and study that increase the Fellow’s knowledge in his or her fields and demonstrably add to teaching effectiveness.

The Paul E. Murray Fellowship in the amount of $10,000 will be awarded annually to a member of the Faculty of the School of Science and Engineering beginning in 2001-2002. The Paul. E. Murray Fellow is a competitively selected faculty member. Winning the Murray Fellowship is an honor and a privilege.

At the end of the grant period, the Paul E. Murray Fellow will submit a report to the Dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering on the work done under the grant, the results obtained, and the materials and perspectives that will contribute to the education of Merrimack College students. The Fellow will also deliver a lecture to the college community at the annual Paul E. Murray Symposium.
