To ensure we enroll the most talented people from all walks of life, Wake Forest’s School of Medicine admits students without regard to their financial circumstances.  

We are proud to create a diverse community that mirrors the world around us. 

Scholarship endowment is a critical way to keep higher education and the health care field open to deserving students. Through an endowed scholarship, donors can: 

  • Permanently honor the person whose name it bears 
  • Influence the quality of and accessibility to medical care for this and future generations 
  • Inspire philanthropy in others 

An endowed scholarship fund works like an investment account. A donor’s charitable gift is invested by Wake Forest Baptist to generate income and gains. A portion of the account’s value is available each year to benefit students enrolled in or intending to enroll in a degree program at the medical school.  

Because of the ongoing need for student financial support, you or your loved one’s legacy can be honored through the annual awarding of your scholarship, while allowing students to realize their dream of helping others.
