A. Elizabeth and Robert B. Palmer Memorial Scholarship in the Classics

This award was established in 1997 in memory of Robert, who was a professor of Classics at Scripps, and his wife, Elizabeth. It is awarded to a student with financial need with preference given to a classics major, as recommended by the Classics Department. In the event that there are no students who have declared a major in the classics, the Department may select a student who has displayed distinguished scholarship and promise in studies in the classics.
