Scholarships & Merit Awards

We want to help you accomplish everything you possibly can. One of the ways we do that is through our scholarships that cover some or all of your Wake Forest Law tuition and fees. There is no application for Wake Forest Law merit scholarships. Awards are based on academic record, LSAT score, character, motivation, potential for contribution to the legal profession and other criteria required by donors.

Note: 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. The University’s definition of directory information is listed at, and is available, upon request, from the registrar’s office.  Recipients of named scholarships may be required to write a thank you note to the donor as a condition for renewal.

External Scholarships

Some are available only to law students, but all are available to law students even if undergraduate and graduate students are also eligible.  The Admissions & Financial Aid office maintains a list of over 425 external scholarships and grants.  The list can be viewed upon request in the Admissions & Financial Aid office.
