We want to help you accomplish your educational goals. One of the ways we do that is through our JD and LLM scholarships that cover some or all of your Wake Forest University School of Law tuition. There is no application for merit scholarships. Awards are based on academic record, standardized test scores, character, motivation, potential for contribution to the legal profession, and other criteria required by donors.

Notice: Recipients of law school scholarships, by accepting the awards, agree to allow the University to release their directory information to the donor individuals and organizations. Recipients of named scholarships may be required to write a thank you note to the donor as a condition for renewal.

External Scholarships

We maintain a list of external scholarship opportunities sent to our office by third parties. These external scholarships are in no way administered, endorsed, or verified by Wake Forest School of Law. We cannot provide any guidance on how to apply for these external scholarships nor are we involved in the review or selection process.
