Salem College Gains
Several new scholarships have
been established and some of the
previous scholarships reorganized
Early in November Salem Col
lege was left a bequest of $10,000
from the will of the late Jessica T.
Fogle, an alumna of the college.
The Jessica T. Fogle Scholarship,
as it is named, gives an annual
award of approximately $475 to a
student majoring in music, art, or
a general academic program.
A memorial scholarship has also
been initiated in honor of the late

dell Piano Scholarship is awarded
to piano majors only. The size of
the award has not yet been de
termined, since the memorial gifts
and pledges from members of the
family, faculty, and alumnae friends
are still being received.
The new change in tuition will
affect several of Salem’s estab
lished scholarships. Those scholar
ships which are awarded on the
basis of need will be increased in
proportion to the tuition rise. A1
though the tuition increase is pri
marily designed to improve faculty
salaries, it will also aid some plan
ned scholarships ranging from $200
to $1200 a year. These scholar
ships, however, will not be estab
lished for some time. The old
Honor Scholarships, which are
based strictly on academic achieve
ment, will be replaced by scholar
ships determined by need as well
as the academic qualifications.
