Scholarship Information

Wake Forest School of Medicine MD Endowed Scholarships

WFSM has over 100 endowed scholarships with both Wake Forest Medical Scholars and need-based considerations.  A listing of our endowed scholarships can be found in the Financial Aid Handbook on page 24. 

Wake Forest Medical Scholars – Applicants complete Wake Forest Medical Scholars requirements when applying to WFSM.  If a student is selected to receive one, it will be renewed each year of medical school as long as the student maintains Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).

Need-Based Scholarships – Students (incoming and current) need to apply each year while in medical school. Information needed includes the current year’s FAFSA, CSS Profile, and prior-prior year tax forms for student, spouse, and parents, even if the student is not claimed as a dependent (see Need-Based Scholarship Application tab for additional information and links).  

External Scholarships

External scholarships provide an excellent source of funding  for medical school. WFSM’s Office of Financial Aid announces available external  scholarships through email correspondence. However, we also recommend that students continue to search for scholarships on their own.  Click the on the links below to search for scholarships pertaining to individual interests, talents, and service programs.
