RAYMOND L. MUNCY SCHOLARSHIP
The Raymond L. Muncy Scholarship is a one-time financial award for those undergraduate students at Harding University majoring in History who demonstrate exceptional scholarship, research, and Christian character. The scholarship was created to honor the late Raymond L. Muncy, chairman of the Department of History and Social Sciences from 1965-1993.
