Our family created the “Mark Pescovitz Scholarship Fund” because we believe Mark was blessed to have mentors in the Cincinnati community who helped shape and develop his love for photography and his innate love of the sciences, particularly medicine through his father. Mark continued throughout his life to make sure that he became distinguished in both areas he loved; medicine, his vocation; and photography, his avocation. We hope to provide the recipients of this scholarship with support, enabling them to expand their own interests in the arts or medicine, as did Mark, and to leave a legacy which can build upon the one that Mark left behind.

We have chosen The Cincinnati Scholarship Foundation due to Mark’s family’s deep Cincinnti roots. The Cincinnati Scholarship Foundation continues to be the premier scholarship foundation in Greater Cincinnati, administering college scholarships on behalf of local businesses, corporations, individuals and other area foundations. For over 90 years, the Cincinnati Scholarship Foundation has been reaching out to motivated and deserving students who have limited financial resources, to provide the means to attend college and the opportunity to realize their dreams.
