More than 425 scholarships and grants are listed on these pages. Some are available exclusively to law students, but all are available to law students even if undergraduate and graduate students are also eligible. Some of the information is given as a service by the Academic Support Office and other non-Wake Forest Law sources, so we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information.
