Daniel Murphy Scholarship Fund
The mission of the Daniel Murphy Scholarship Fund is to give high school scholarship assistance and educational support to Chicago students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. DMSF seeks to make a life-altering difference in the lives of its Scholars by providing them with the best opportunity to succeed in high school and college.
DMSF works to ensure that financial constraints do not hinder a young person’s ability to obtain a quality education. DMSF seeks to create three-way partnerships between college preparatory high schools, the families of bright but economically disadvantaged young people from Chicago, and DMSF. Through these partnerships, young people who traditionally have very little choice in matters of education receive the opportunity to attend a high performing high school, participate in extracurricular activities, benefit from honors and accelerated high school classes, and take advantage of DMSF’s educational support services and programs.
By giving these Scholars the opportunity to attend college preparatory high schools, DMSF is making a difference in the lives of deserving young men and women, their families and their communities.
