The Marks Scholarship
For New Bern High School Seniors, awarded annually


The Marks Scholarship was established by a trust estate which was created in 1968 under the terms of the will of Miss Harriett Marks as a memorial to the O. Marks family, and is awarded annually based on both scholarship and need. The Scholarship contributes to the tuition, board or lodging of a senior graduating from New Bern High School for the purpose of obtaining higher education at an accredited college, university or other institution of higher learning. Renewable for three succeeding years as long as academic standards are maintained, the scholarship provides financial assistance to a deserving senior based on scholarship and service to community and school.

We are very proud of the academic records of our scholarship awardees over the years, and we look forward to contributing to more students who will maintain this tradition.
