What is the Lizzi Marriott Intrepid Ocean Explorer Scholarship?
The Lizzi Marriott Intrepid Ocean Explorer Scholarship is awarded to one or
more individuals who demonstrate the desire to carry out Lizzi Marriott’s mission to “Become a prominent figure
in protecting our oceans and to help others learn the wonders of our surrounding waters”.
The Lizzi Marriott Intrepid Explorer Fund is a trust that was established by the
Marriott family to award scholarships for young adults looking to embrace an
education and life working in marine sciences. Each year the Trustees of the fund will
determine the number, size and criteria for the scholarship. The scholarship is availible
to anyone who meets the criteria defined by the Trustees. Preference will be given to
Westborough High School graduates, volunteers at the New England Aquarium and
University of New Hampshire students studying Marine Sciences.
Why the name “Intrepid Ocean Explorer”?
her college essay for the University of New Hampshire Lizzi wrote about her
passion for the oceans. The essay described the trans-formative effect that
volunteering at the New England Aquarium had for her, " My
visitors don’t see me as some teenage girl; instead they see me as an intrepid
ocean explorer. " She concluded her essay by saying that until she
could become a "prominent figure protecting our oceans" she would be content
being an "Intrepid Explorer".
