WSF Now Accepting Scholarship Applications for 2021-2022 School Year

The Winston-Salem Foundation is now accepting applications for its scholarship program for the 2021-2022 academic year. Deadlines are March 15 for most merit-based scholarships and July 1 for financial need-based scholarships.  

The Foundation has more than 130 scholarships and granted $1.2 million last year to students from Forsyth, Davidson, Davie, Stokes, Surry, Wilkes, and Yadkin Counties. Students can qualify with a wide range of GPAs and interests, and they may be considering attending community colleges, colleges, and universities.

To be considered for most scholarships, students must first submit their FAFSA. Students who can’t complete FAFSA (such as non-citizens without a green card or permanent status) can still apply through the scholarship portal.

After submitting FAFSA, students complete the One-Stop Scholarship Application. Students are automatically considered for the scholarships for which they are eligible—with just one application.
