Merrell Thomas Marshall Memorial Scholarship

2013-2014 Marshall Memorial Scholarship Recipients

Founded by Ms. Sandy Marshall, in honor of her father, the Marshall Scholarship recognizes students who are committed to diversity-related work in their communities, on campus, and in society at large. Since Miss Marshall passed away she left a sizable donation which has given more opportunities for students to receive scholarships. In previous years there was only one scholarship recipient. However, due to Miss Marshall's generosity two graduate students were awarded $1400 scholarships and two undergraduate students were awarded $1000 scholarships. Congratulations!
