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.

We recently selected our newest scholars from the 2018 senior class from Salem City High School. 

Though there are no current scholarship opportunities available,  we will announce when our next round of applications are available in the Spring of 2018.

If you have any questions about our scholarship programming, please contact Rick Wilson, Scholarship Director, at
