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 spring 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.
