It is Mar’quis' dream to pay it forward to the Black Beavers here on Oregon State University’s campus. His inspiration for this scholarship was realizing how things hit a large shift mid-March while less and less students were taking classes, moving away, and overall in a financial hardship as COVID-19 had taken students jobs, friends/family, and overall motivation.
His dream is to be able to set up OSU students for success as they work towards graduating with their respective degrees to accomplish their own academic dreams just as he did.
This is a unique scholarship without a set amount of funds to be distributed. The award amount will begin at starting at $500 which Mar’quis will be directly contributing to. As we receive more funds through generous donations, the total scholarship award amount will continuously increase as we go through the application process. All donations will greatly contribute to the total final award amount, the total number of award recipients, and the impact we create for the Oregon State Black Community.
The identified goal of $1914 was generated as a symbol of recognition for Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc; a historically Black Greek Letter Organization. Mar’quis became a member near the beginning of his junior year where he was openly accepted into a family-like support system of brothers & sisters across the state of Oregon and beyond as he navigated college life as an out-of-state student.
In order to give this scholarship the kick start that Mar'quis desires, he has contributed personal funds of his own, aside from GoFundMe donations, in order to demonstrate the passion he carries for the Bryant Morgan Scholarship.
