The Marcy Houses Memorial Scholarship Fund (MHMSF) provides up to $500 to one or more students each year. Students must use the scholarship funds towards their educational expenses while attending an accredited college, university or licensed trade/vocational school. The Fund is intended to provide Marcy Houses’ students with financial support so that they may pursue their educational passions. A MHMSF Scholarship consists of financial support for a term of one year, mentorship by a MHMSF Board Member for the duration of the student’s college or trade school tenure and an award ceremony to celebrate student achievement.
MHMSF Recipients are selected by our Board of Trustees, which is comprised of a group of distinguished professionals with backgrounds in various industries including business, education, medicine, landscape architecture, the law, and the arts.
