Wake Forest awards Joseph G. Gordon scholarships to students who show exceptional promise and achievement and who are members of constituencies traditionally underrepresented at Wake Forest.
Gordon Scholarships have been awarded since 1986, and up to five Gordon Scholars are chosen annually. Each Gordon Scholarship covers the annual cost of tuition, room, and board, plus $3,400 for personal expenses. Gordon Scholars are encouraged to apply for up to $5,000 for a research, study, or travel project during each of the three summers between the first and senior years.
Finalists are invited to campus for interviews and are notified by the end of March.
Wake Forest University offers merit based scholarships that students from all socio-economic backgrounds may be eligible to apply for.
