Carter Center Sponsorship

The Carter Center is guided by the principles of Founders, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. Founded in partnership with Emory University on a fundamental commitment to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering, the Center seeks to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health.

Through the generosity of former trustee Barbara Bruner ’76, one current Scripps College student is selected to attend the Carter Center’s Executive Briefing Conference in Atlanta, GA every year with an optional add-on trip to President Carter’s hometown in Plains, GA. This award covers all conference-related expenses including airfare, hotel, registration, and meals.
