Nearly a decade ago, William & Mary launched a new scholarship program designed to bring students to the university who, by any measure, would be considered among the nation's very best. It was called the Murray Scholars Program. Made possible through a leadership gift by Jim Murray J.D. '74, LL.D. '00 and his wife Bruce, it has been a remarkable success.
Today, the program continues to thrive, now under a new name - the 1693 Scholars Program.
In the fall of 2012, the program was able to expand by two additional scholars each year thanks to the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation.
