The Marshall Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to outstanding students who are committed to identifying and taking the next strategic steps to address issues of diversity in their communities, on their campuses, and in society at large. Scholarship awards may not be made to the same person in consecutive years, rather every two years.

Marshall Memorial Scholarship recipients possess a commitment to promoting social justice and a society free from prejudice and discrimination. These outstanding students also advocate social justice with regard to race, ethnicity, economic status, national origin, disability, gender, sexual identity, age, and religious viewpoints.

Ms. Sandy Marshall, shared that her motivation for starting the scholarship rested in her father's lifelong commitment to equity and inclusion.  This commitment allowed her to become an adult who felt she could move freely throughout her community without fear or prejudice.  This has become a major theme of her life and she wanted to create a memorial not only to her father but also to encourage and support more young people to dedicate a part of their lives to these ideals.
