Since 2005, Wake Forest has awarded the First Citizens South Carolina Scholarship. To be eligible, students must have been residents of South Carolina for at least five years immediately prior to matriculating at Wake Forest; and they must express an interest in pursuing studies in business, accounting, finance, economics, or a related field.
The First Citizens Scholarship is a competitive need-based scholarship. 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.
Wake Forest University offers merit based scholarships that students from all socio-economic backgrounds may be eligible to apply for.
