The Loy McCandless Marks Scholarship Fund was established by the Elizabeth L. Marks Trust. Mrs. Marks was a Garden Club of Honolulu member from 1948 until the time of her death in 1996.
Her trust provided $50,000 “for the establishment of a scholarship fund, the income from which shall be awarded to well-qualified science majors specializing in tropical horticulture or landscape architecture to afford them the opportunity for one or two years of serious study at outstanding botanical institutions abroad."
This scholarship is a complementary award, intended to supplement a student's pursuit of a previously accepted program of study abroad. This scholarship is only awarded in even number years.
