The Eileen Murphy Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2003 by the Northumberland Salmon Protection Association (N.S.P.A.). An avid fly-tier and fisherperson, Eileen was a faithful supporter of the Miramichi River and its people. On many occasions she donated her hand-made framed flies to various groups in order to raise funds for the protection and conservation of the Atlantic salmon. Eileen was a Miramichier in every sense of the word and, wherever she travelled, she never forgot her roots and nor her connection to the river. The N.S.P.A. awards one $500.00 scholarship annually, in June, to a Grade 12 student living on the Miramichi Watershed Drainage. See Attached Criteria and Application Form for more information.
