The Deric Marshall II Memorial Scholarship

The Deric Marshall II Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a registered EduPlus student before his or her first semester to cover the fee for the program and services provided. It is generously awarded by Deric's mother, Julet Marshall, in remembrance of her son who was an exceptional and successful EduPlus student.

Deric Marshall was born in Queens, New York on November 4, 1985.  He discovered his love of the visual arts at a very young age. He took art and cartoon courses at The Jamaica Arts Center in Jamaica, Queens on Saturdays while in junior high school and also at Jangigian’s in Flushing, Queens.

Deric was accepted to attend the High School of Art and Design in Manhattan and later studied cartoon and graphic arts at the Joe Kubert School in Dover, New Jersey.

Deric was accepted to the EduPlus program at New York Institute of Technology in the Spring of 2006. He was very happy and looked forward to beginning his career in college and beyond. He started classes in September 2006, majoring in Computer Animation. He never looked back and he never slowed down. More importantly, Deric was an inspiration to others as an EduPlus student at NYIT. He encouraged others to persevere onwards and not give up when they considered dropping out. He shared his tricks of the trade with others and had a positive impact on many.

Sadly, Deric passed away on December 23, 2009 after a brief illness. This scholarship is given to honor his memory and his spirit of caring, helpfulness, and perseverance.

New students who are admitted to the EduPlus program will receive details on the scholarship award process. To be eligible, students must be admitted to the EduPlus program, complete the FAFSA, and be registered for classes. The Deric Marshall II Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to one new EduPlus student chosen by a committee. For questions about the Deric Marshall II Memorial Scholarship, please email EduPlus@nyit.edu.
