K. Wayne Smith Scholarships

Since 2000, Wake Forest has awarded the K. Wayne Smith Scholarship to North Carolina residents, with preference to applicants from the counties of Catawba, Burke, Caldwell, and Alexander, and to children of full-time employees of OCLC, Inc. in Dublin Ohio.

The K. Wayne Smith Scholarship is a competitive need-based scholarship.

To Apply

Applicants should complete both the CSS Profile and the FAFSA by January 1, so that need may be determined before the selection process is complete.
