Our mom, Marilyn Palmer, was a believer in the possible.
As a loving wife to a basketball coach and the mother of 4 boys, she was an eternal optimist with a keen sense of gratitude for the world. As her kids grew older, she became increasingly involved in tutoring and ended her working career as a census taker.
She truly was an American Girl, thrifty and clever, who always found a way to make things work out for the best no matter the circumstance.
To honor her great legacy and the life she lived, our family would like to offer the Marilyn J. Palmer Scholarship to one American student who, instead of pursuing the ordinary undergraduate route, is interested in taking their studies to a trade/vocational school to harness their skills in a specific field.
To apply, please write about what being an American means to you.

The application deadline is Mar 31, 2021. Winners will be announced on Apr 12, 2021.
The scholarship award is $532.
The winner will be publicly announced on Apr 12, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
