Creating an Affordable Wake Forest

The mission of Student Financial Aid is to provide the financial resources needed for enrollment by a socio-economically, ethnically and geographically diverse student body. We are committed to helping students with an appetite for rigorous work and a dynamic community, as well as the ability to intellectually challenge our teacher-scholars and each other.

We work to make it financially possible for students who are committed to philanthropy, service, friendliness, honor, and living Pro Humanitate to enroll at Wake Forest.

Merit Based Scholarships

Wake Forest offers a limited number of merit based scholarships.  These scholarships, among the highest  honors given to WFU students, are renewable for up to 4 years, subject to satisfactory academic, extracurricular, and civic performance
