Robert B. Harris Scholars

(Pictured: Young Robert & Marcus Harris)


A visionary. A leader. A humanitarian. A loving father. 


Robert B. Harris, Marcus' only brother, walked many different paths in life, all of them leading to the betterment of each life he touched. Whether as an ordained minister, volunteer, or activist, his selfless dedication to serving the community forged a powerful legacy that continues to touch thousands of lives, long after he left this Earth too soon.


To honor Robert and his invaluable contributions to society, the Marcus Harris Foundation has created the Robert B. Harris Memorial Scholarship Program. To be considered a Robert B. Harris Scholar, applicants must demonstrate a strong commitment to community service, as well as be leaders for positive change in the lives of those around them. 


Two (2) scholarship awards in the amount of $500 each will be awarded for the 2018-2019 academic year.
