Each year, our Scholars list finances as the number one barrier to achieving their dream of higher education. COVID-19 has only exacerbated the financial stressors our Scholars and their families face. Since March, 70 Scholars have contacted Palmer Scholars at least once for assistance with emergency financial needs, including rent, food, PPE, and technology. In this time, our Scholars need all the support they can get to not only persist through higher education but to simply survive. We believe postsecondary success requires support in and out of the classroom. We are proud to have provided $6,000 in emergency aid to our Scholars in their families since March. Without the support of community organizations like Palmer Scholars, our Scholars may have needed to pursue high-interest loans just to have food to eat and a roof over their heads. This #GivingTuesday, join us in supporting our Emergency Fund. Your generous donation will ensure our Scholars know they have a community invested in their success. When you're part of the Palmer Scholars family, you are #NeverALoan.
