About the Scholarships

ACSC’s prestige led to stewardship, preservation and ultimate relocation of the famed Hughes Flying Boat (the Spruce Goose). Revenue from this stewardship is used for ACSC’s scholarship program.

A Marsha Toy Scholarship Fund has been established with an endowment of $100,000 from the founder of Academy Pacific Travel College.
