The Salem Glen College Assistance Program in memory of Richard 'Dick' Bunker

Up to $2,500 toward a 2-year program of study leading to a degree or certification in any trade, technical, or vocational field.

Amount:  Up to $2,500 limited to tuition and fees, as well as course-required tools, books, and supplies toward a 2-year program of study leading to a degree or certification in any trade, technical, or vocational field with a clear career pathway at Forsyth Technical Community College (Forsyth Tech) or Davidson-Davie Community College (DCCC). Recipients may re-apply for a second-year scholarship; however, no preferential considerations will be made.

Purpose: The Salem Glen College Assistance Program aims to help high school seniors and adults now returning to school to improve their options for a higher-earning career. The program will assist students as they navigate and pursue a two-year degree or career certification from Forsyth Tech or DCCC. The Salem Glen College Assistance Program will also provide a mentor pairing to scholarship recipients to aid occupational goal engagement. Mentors will be selected volunteers from the Salem Glen neighborhood.An electrical engineer by trade, Richard Bunker valued education above all else and believed that everyone had the right to higher education. In his retirement, he found great joy in tutoring all levels and ages of students, ranging from middle school through graduate school. He would have fully supported the great things that Salem Glen and the Clemmons Community Foundation are doing by not only providing financial assistance to deserving students but offering a mentor to take the journey with them. In 2021 this award is given in loving remembrance, thanks to his family.
