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.

Available Scholarships

The MSBA program offers several types of scholarships, including endowed awards and other scholarship awards offered on a competitive basis. All scholarships will be based on information collected through the admissions application. No separate scholarship application is required.

Regarding external scholarships, due to the rapidly changing nature of that type of assistance, we do not maintain a comprehensive listing of external scholarships. Rather, we encourage candidates to research relevant professional organizations, religious affiliations, and community groups for availability.

Endowed Scholarship Awards

The Wake Forest School of Business is fortunate to receive strong financial support from alumni and other benefactors who fund a number of endowed scholarship awards.
