The mission of the Scholars Program is to identify and support Wake Forest students who engage their community, cultivate intentional personal and intellectual development, broaden their minds with academic research, explore the world, make intentional career decisions, and lead lives that matter—all rooted in the spirit of Pro Humanitate.

The Wake Forest Scholars Program identifies and promotes high academic and civic achievement among undergraduate students in the College. We support those seeking competitive external scholarship opportunities and work closely with the Magnolia and Signature Scholars to ensure that they succeed and flourish in their time on campus. 

Our mission and our responsibility are to encourage excellence that can lead to great opportunities while at Wake Forest—and beyond. This Program represents the continued emphasis that Wake Forest places on cultivating the intellectual and academic development of its students and how they engage with the wider world.
