Family and Friends of Marybeth T. Murphy

The family and friends of Marybeth T. Murphy, a 1983 UMass Amherst graduate who studied landscape architecture with a major in environmental design established this scholarship in her memory. Murphy earned her master’s degree at the University of Pennsylvania and the Marybeth T. Murphy Memorial Scholarship serves as a tribute to her and her commitment of urban public art. As a landscape architect, she was captivated by the magical qualities of our natural world and inspired by the notion that this enchanting place is for all to enjoy equally. She helped design many parks, city streets, and bike trails in an effort to make the world a more beautiful place. Her highly-developed sense of social responsibility, coupled with her enormous courage, guided her throughout her life. Friends and family established this scholarship to provide needed support for students who share her ideals.
