The Leroy and Teresa Robinson Scholarship Fund at Wake Forest provides scholarships to students from the high schools in Montgomery County, North Carolina. Preference is given to graduates of East Montgomery High School, but applications are encouraged from graduates of all schools in the county. The awards are based on the applicant’s academic achievement, diligence, integrity, character and leadership and range from $2,000 up to full tuition. Demonstrated financial need is taken into account but is not required to win a Robinson Scholarship. However, the special aim of the program is to encourage needy students to apply, since the generous funding of this program is geared especially to students who otherwise could not afford a Wake Forest education. The program seeks especially to identify the most capable and needy students in Montgomery County, and provide them the opportunity to choose Wake Forest.
