Scholarship programs have been established at Palmer to help make it more financially feasible for students to earn a theology degree. Brauch, Sider, and Wallis Scholarships are available. These scholarships, which include a mentoring component, are based on undergraduate academic achievement and theological commitments. A limited number of Ayres or Wilberforce Scholarships, for $4,000 in aid, are available to Wallis or Sider scholars. The application deadline each year for Brauch, Sider, Wallis, Ayres, and Wilberforce scholarships is July 1 for Fall semester and December 1 for Spring semester.
