Three seniors from the School of Business have received Richter Scholar awards, spending their summer on enriching projects. The Richter Scholar awards are the largest single awards at Wake Forest University for independent study projects. These life-changing research projects allow students to receive up to $6,000 to cover travel and living expenses.
