Claremont, California (PRWEB) October 21, 2016
In 2013, the family of Tia Palermo, a longtime resident of Livingston County, established a scholarship at Scripps College in her memory.
Through her dedication and hard work, Tia supported herself as she obtained a bachelor’s degree in education. One of her daughters, Zoe Ravich McNitt ’12, attended Scripps College, a private women’s liberal arts college in Southern California. She says, “My parents both believed in the power of women’s education, and my mother adored the Scripps College campus and what the college stood for as a women’s institution.”
Scripps College welcomes applications from students in the upstate New York counties of Livingston, Wyoming, Orleans, Genesee, Erie, Niagara and Monroe to apply for admission. If admitted, an incoming student from one of these counties who demonstrates financial need would be eligible for the Tia Palermo Scholarship, which provides anywhere from a partial to a full scholarship as determined by that student’s demonstrated financial need.
