Selma and Mel Burns Scholarship

Selma and the late Melvin Burns have been friends of Warren Wilson College since 1975. Though they had no children of their own, they would often open their home to Warren Wilson’s international students over college breaks. Their interest in international students is reflected in the guidelines for this scholarship fund which they established in 1985 for the benefit of a full-time student with demonstrated financial need and with preference given to foreign students.
