Welcome to the website of the Wake Forest Scholars Program.  On this site you will find information on scholarships that are available and how to apply for them.  You can also find a record of past scholars and their recent activities.

We hope you enjoy this site and find it useful in making plans and developing your applications.

Message from the Director

The Wake Forest Scholars Office provides information and guidance for students interested in exploring competitive external opportunities to enhance their undergraduate and post-graduate development.

This can take the shape of an award that recognizes your research acumen (such as the Goldwater Scholarship), sends you overseas to learn a foreign language (like the Critical Language Scholarship), or provides support for pursuing a further degree (Rhodes Scholars, for example, study at Oxford University).

Take a moment to explore our website to see the range of scholarship opportunities that exist. Determine which you are most interested in and may be best suited for. Many of these opportunities seek students with strong academic records and achievements in a particular realm, often gained by conducting research, demonstrating leadership, or engaging in public service.

Some awards require university nomination, while others are entirely self-directed. Once you have identified an opportunity of interest, please schedule an appointment with our office to discuss ways that we can support your application, and guide you through the on-campus nomination process if necessary.

To your success,

Jackie Sheridan

Director of the Wake Forest Scholars Office
