The Financial Planning Office on Palmer’s Davenport campus was busy again this spring awarding
more than 20 U.S. and international scholarships to students who’d achieved outstanding academic
performance and made significant extracurricular contributions.
The awards process begins with the Development Office notifying Financial Planning of the endowed
scholarships that have reached maturity. Financial Planning then sends out notices to students who
live in the jurisdictions represented by the various scholarships to let them know they’re eligible to
apply. All submitted applications are then reviewed by a 13-member scholarship committee, which
selects scholarship winners.
“I love knowing that so many good, well-rounded students are getting the assistance they need to
complete their education here at Palmer,” said Financial Planning Director Brenda Gran.
