Dr. Forman S. Acton always said his education is what made him successful. In his memory, we award college scholarships to Salem's highest-achieving students, and we call these students Forman Scholars.

Forman Scholars can receive $40,000 during their undergraduate college years. To be eligible, students must attend Salem City High School and meet certain academic and financial need requirements.

Beginning April 1, 2017, current Salem High School juniors who plan to enroll in college in the Fall of 2018, may begin a scholarship application. To preview the application and learn more about the scholarship guidelines and expectations, please click here.

Current Forman Scholars may also begin their process for re-application on April 1, 2017.
