Need and Merit-Based Scholarships

Wake Forest offers merit-based scholarships to fewer than 3% of first-year applicants. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions selects all merit-based scholarship recipients.

Most scholarships (including the full-cost Signature Scholarships) do not require a separate merit-based scholarship application. Instead, students need only submit a complete application for undergraduate admissions by November 15. Finalists for scholarships that require more comprehensive interviews or auditions will be notified by the end of March.

Though criteria differ slightly, all scholarship programs recognize extraordinary achievement, leadership, and talent. Recipients embody those qualities that have led their predecessors since 1986 to thirteen Rhodes Scholarships, three Marshall Scholarships, twelve Truman Scholarships, over ninety Fulbright Scholars, and other honors including Gates, Goldwater, Beinecke, and Luce.

Previous graduates of merit-based scholarship programs are profiled by the Wake Forest Scholars Office.

Some merit-based scholarships also require financial need. A family can estimate financial need by using the Net Price Calculator.

Applicants who believe they might qualify for need-based aid should apply by January 1. Most scholarships at Wake Forest consider financial need as a recipient selection criterion. Separate applications are not required, as recipients are selected based on data from the admission applications and the FAFSA™ and CSS Profile® applications. Please see the Scholarships Catalog section below for descriptions of permanently endowed need-based scholarships and other scholarships. A separate application is required only if specified in the scholarship description.


Available Merit-Based Scholarships

Merit-Based Scholarships for first-year applicants include the Signature Scholarship Program scholarships, other scholarships that require an additional application or materials, and other scholarships that do not require any additional application or materials.

    We are looking for the best and brightest students who have demonstrated exceptional moral leadership, commitment and purpose. We want students who have overcome great odds, worked hard to accomplish important goals and demonstrated the ability to work on behalf of others. We seek to attract students who have shown virtues such as honesty, diligence, curiosity, generosity, humility and gratitude. In short, we want exceptional students whose lives manifest great character and who seek out a collegiate experience in which leadership and character development will be central.

    Many colleges and universities offer full scholarships based on academic achievement, perfect test scores, math and science awards, or accolades in music, art and theatre. Wake Forest proposes to honor another form of excellence: character.

    Each incoming class will include a small, selective cohort of top students who will be awarded a full scholarship, based on merit, toward their educational costs. These scholars will participate in leadership and character programming designed specifically for them, and they will be offered experiential learning opportunities to practice leadership and character in service to our campus and within the greater community.

    To be eligible for the Leadership and Character Scholarship, students must apply for, and qualify for, need-based financial aid in their first year.
