Houts Family Scholarship

Application Deadline: Monday, March 26, 2018 11:59 PM

Award Notification: May 2018

Award Amount: Up to $4,000

Application Submission Process: Submit an on-line scholarship application which will be available Monday, January 15, 2018 on "My Aid".

The Houts Family Scholarship was created by an anonymous donor, who wished to honor Marshall and Mary Houts and their seven children ("the Houts Family"), and the warmth and encouragement they gave him, so much that he felt like the 8th Houts child. The donor's hope in establishing the scholarship was to honor that support, while giving financial support, to worthy students to obtain their undergraduate degree from UCI.

UCI was selected for the Houts Family Scholarship because Marshall and Mary's involvement with UCI came early in UCI's inception. The entire family attended UCI's 1964 groundbreaking by President Lyndon Johnson. One of their daughters was a member of UCI's charter class when it opened its doors in September 1965. Mary was active in UCI Town and Gown; Marshall was an adjunct professor of the forensic pathology course at UCI's School of Medicine, involved in efforts to establish the UCI Hospital on campus, and was a visiting lecturer at UCI's history department in a course titled, History of Jesus.
