Dear Friend of the Murphy Institute:
As you may already know, the Murphy Institute has launched a new Scholarship in Labor Studies, designed to promote diversity of leadership in the labor movement and in the academic field of Labor Studies. The Institute is now accepting applications for the 2014-15 academic year and has already received numerous inquiries. The scholarship is substantial: up to $30,000 for graduate students and up to $20,000 for undergraduates. It is also very competitive, designed to provide rigorous education and training to our most promising potential leaders.
A press release, announcing the new scholarship program is attached. Click on the links for the on-line application, and for details about the scholarship.
We want to reach a broad national audience, so we ask for your help in spreading the good news to your network of colleagues and associates. If the Murphy Institute can be of any assistance as you reach out to your constituencies, please don’t hesitate to call on us.
We extend heartfelt thanks to those of you who have already contributed to the scholarship fund. We hope you will continue to support us in the campaign to build this new diversity initiative. You will be hearing more about scholarship events coming up this spring.
