Dick and Julia Richards Scholarship

Dick and Julia Richards were both widowed when they came to Warren Wilson College as volunteers in the mid 1980s. They met and soon married. Both shared an interest in the College’s distinctive mission and were especially interested in helping international students. In 1995, the couple established the Dick and Julia Richards Scholarship Fund for international students, preferably those with great financial need. Dick passed away in 2009, but Julia continues to be deeply involved in the activities of the Warren Wilson Presbyterian Church and College Chapel.
