Masters in Accounting

Overview

Each year the School of Business awards scholarships to eligible, deserving applicants who we feel would benefit greatly from a Wake Forest education and contribute significantly to the intellectual and civic life of the campus. Award decisions are based on considerations including academic merit, financial need, and individual award criteria.

Important Facts

  • All applications received by the scholarship deadline are automatically considered for general scholarship awards.
  • Candidates who apply after the scholarship deadline will be considered as funds are available.
  • Scholarship decisions are made in conjunction with admissions decisions on a rolling basis. Applicants who are awarded a scholarship will be notified at the time of the admissions decision.
